Cheteshwar Pujara slammed his maiden Test century on thursday against New Zealand in the first Test at Hyderabad, dedicating the ton his father.
 
The Saurashtra batsman also said he thinks he can't replace the batting legend Rahul Dravid.
 
'I don't think I can replace Rahul Dravid because he is such a legend. He has more than 10,000 runs in both the formats. It's impossible to replace him,' Pujara said after the day's play. 
 
'Obviously I am really happy, it was a dream to start off like this. I wanted to score a hundred in my debut game. But somehow I missed it, so I am really satisfied that I got my maiden hundred now,' he said. He dedicated the achievement to his parents and was looking at converting it into a double century on Friday.
 
'I would like to dedicate this to my father. I'm very thankful to him. He has been working with me since I was a child. I would like to dedicate this to my father and my mother. I think the first target is to put on 400 on the board. Individually, if I can score a double hundred, that would be great, but the initial target would be (for the team) to score 400,' he said.
