By Sahil


Skilfull batter Cheteshwar Pujara has been best of his form this season for Sussex as he first scored five centuries for the team in the County Championship Division 2. This was the pivotal reason that Pujara was even consider to lead the side when regular skipper Tom Haines’ was sidelined due to injury.

At the moment, the batter has carried on with his form, and in a current, he registered a ton for the side against Warwickshire in the Royal London One-Day Cup on Friday in a Group A clash.

During the match, Sussex was chasing 311 and Pujara came into bat with the side being 112/2 in the 22nd over. Pujara, who is leading Sussex, went on to score 107 runs off just 79 balls with the help of 7 fours and 2 sixes. His knock also included 22 runs coming off the 45th over bowled by Liam Norwell.

Right-handed Pujara then proced on to bring his century in the 48th over of the innings, and his knock finally came to an end in the 49th over as he was clean bowled by Hannon-Dalby.

Nevertheless, Pujara’s knock was not sufficient to take Sussex over the line as the side fell four runs short at Edgbaston.

Prior, batting first Warwickshire had posted 310/6 in 50 overs, owing to a 114-run knock by Robert Yates.

For Sussex, Alistair Orr also played a knock of 81 runs, but this was not enough for the side to get over the line.

In Group A, Sussex are currently spoted at the 6th spot with 4 points from 4 games.
