Cheteshwar Pujara’s love-story with the short-leg fielder has become a talking point of the series, with the right-hander getting out to an unlucky dismissal in the first Test. Pujara has now topped it off with a freakish run-out at the hands of the short-leg fielder to keep the tradition going.
That's so bizarre
Comparing @cheteshwar1 pujara's luck with mine 🙁— Gaurav Gawade (@GauravGawade88) February 15, 2021
#IndvEng Pujara’s Run Out was unbelievable.... His bat got jabbed just on the line and then he tried to put his foot inside the crease and gloves as well..— Anurag Sinha (@anuragsinha1992) February 15, 2021
Foakes removed the bail seconds before foot landed on the crease.. pic.twitter.com/itUwjCgygJ
That has been his series sadly
How unlucky has Pujara been this series! First Test short ball from Bess pulled perfectly, hits short leg fielder & lobs to short mid wicket & today bat getting stuck in the pitch. 😔#INDvENG— Sanjay Manjrekar (@sanjaymanjrekar) February 15, 2021
