India ended the second day with a 162-run lead over West Indies at Jamaica, but it was Cheteshwar Pujara's slow knock that caught the eye. Twitterati praised KL Rahul's stunning innings of 158, while Pujara faced their ire for his 46 off 159 deliveries

So Cheteshwar Pujara is doing a copy+paste. pic.twitter.com/X4ZorTsMNe— Abhinav Agarwal (@AbhinavAgarwal) July 31, 2016
Bit worried about Pujara. Thought that 100 in SL would set him free. But still looks out of form every time he bats these days.— Sanjay Manjrekar (@sanjaymanjrekar) July 31, 2016
Over a period of time I realised that my biggest strength was holding me back too. Patience isn't always a virtue. #WIvIND— Aakash Chopra (@cricketaakash) July 31, 2016
Pujara is playing 7-day Test match.— Keh Ke Peheno (@coolfunnytshirt) July 31, 2016
Someone told 'players become impatient, that's by test matches r finishing before 5th day'. Seems it hurts Pujara's sentiments.— Sunil- The Cricketer (@1sInto2s) July 31, 2016
Those questioning Pujara's place in the side, he still has the highest average in this batting line up #WIvInd— cricBC (@cricBC) July 31, 2016
If your top order grinds the opposition bowlers long enough, lower order/bowlers will always score runs. Good old fashioned tactics. #WIvInd— cricBC (@cricBC) July 31, 2016
