Trailing England by 474 runs, India started the day at 63 for no loss. The hosts lost their first wicket quickly in form of Gautam Gambhir as he was lbw off Stuart Broad but since then, Pujara showed positive intent when he came out to bat. Pujara was sure of what he was doing, got some vital blows on his helmet but struck his ground. He was at par with his foot movement against spinners as he flicked and cut with purpose. He has stuck a vital partnership with another half-centurion, Murali Vijay, and will like to bat for a long period. <strong><a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/series/england-in-india-2016-200414/live-scores/india-vs-england-1st-test-match-181704-summary.html" target="_blank">Live Cricket Scorecard: India vs England 1st Test at Rajkot</a></strong></p> <p></p>Pujara was in form in the three-Test series against New Zealand and carried on from where he had left.

With competition in the Indian batting line-up and hosts' behind England by a huge margin, Pujara will like to make a resounding statement by registering a big knock. <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/live-cricket-score-india-vs-england-1st-test-day-3-at-rajkot-545294" target="_blank"><strong>Live Cricket Updates, India vs England,1st Test, Rajkot</strong></a> <p></p> <p></p>Pujara-Vijay have added more than 50 together and will like to carry their bat till the lunch session to add onto the miseries of England.
