After Being Dropped from India’s Test Squad, Cheteshwar Pujara Breaks Silence

Cheteshwar Pujara is a big name who is absent from the test squad for Team India as the BCCI revealed the team that will be travelling to the West Indies next month. There were plenty of big calls, but none bigger than Pujara being dropped when the squad was announced on Friday, June 23.

A day after being dropped from the Test squad, Pujara has finally broken his silence on social media, sharing his love for the sport with his fans. Visibly unfazed by the snub, Pujara showed that he’s willing to continue to work hard and earn his place back in the Indian team as he was seen putting in the hard yards during a training session.

Shortly after the news of Pujara's exclusion from the Indian team, the veteran batter was included in the Duleep Trophy 2023 squad for the West Zone, along with Suryakumar Yadav, another player who didn’t find a place in the West Indies squad.

The 35-year-old shared a video of his batting session as he was seen preparing for the Duleep Trophy, and it has been reported that Pujara will continue to play county cricket, just like he was doing before the World Test Championship final, after he didn’t find a place in the Indian team.

Along with the video of his batting practice, Pujara shared two emojis, showing his love for the sport.
