Cheteshwar Pujara is really making a statement in County Championships Division Two this season as he registered his fourth 100-plus score in as many games for Sussex while playing against Middlesex at Hove on Saturday. Pujara has already scored two double centuries for Sussex apart from one hundred before this game. Looking at the class of the Indian player, even the official social media handles of Sussex Cricket shared the video clip of him scoring stylish shots all around the ground to reach a remarkable century. The caption read, “Fourth match, fourth 100+ score. It’s a privilege to watch, @cheteshwar1.”
