Indian cricketer Cheteshwar Pujara said that Australia pacer James Pattinson has been the best bowler in the first Test match.

"So far I think Pattinson was the best. They were getting reverse swing but we were prepared for it. We knew that their strength is fast bowling. They will be relying on fast bowlers.
 
"In Indian conditions there was not so much swing movements so what they were trying was to get the ball old as early as possible to get the reverse swing."
 
Asked if he was surprised by the bowling of Australian quickies, Pujara said, "As I said before I lost the ball half way and that was the reason I lost my wicket. Otherwise, on the Indian wickets, there was not much of pace for the bowlers because of the wicket condition," Pujara was quoted as saying by PTI.
