what you would be doing if you were cheteshwar pujara...?

shared by straight point on Monday, September 20, 2010

selectors are not going to wait till BPXI game... they will be meeting today to select the test team for the home series against australia...

so another potential selection awaits CHE'teshwar pujara...

how will the day end for him...?

will he be looking forward to the BPXI game to justify the faith selectors would show on him by selecting him...? or will he look at that game to show that there is no cure for the myopia selectors are suffering from...?

in my team CHE would have made it far ahead of rohit sharmas, suresh rainas but that is my team... in team india... he will have to wait till endless chances would be bestowed on players like yuvraj... rohit sharmas to make it certain that there is no test cricket in them...or drag seniors like dravid, sachin and laxman till there is no test cricket left in them...

but then will pujara be able to hold the forte without assurance of performance appreciation coming for that long or will he let the disappointment of consistent ignorance without explanation eat his trusted companions like talent... temperament... that have kept him going till now...

we shall see in not so distant future...


update:

guess who said this...

but i am not losing on hope and my gut feeling is that he will be selected (if not play) for oz home series...

finally selectors could not afford to keep him out... cheteshwar pujara has finally made it to team india... lets see when he breaks into final xi...

the team:
MS Dhoni (capt. & wk), Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Rahul Dravid, Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman, Suresh Raina, Cheteshwar Pujara, M Vijay, Harbhajan Singh, Zaheer Khan, Ishant Sharma, Pragyan Ojha, Sreesanth and Amit Mishra

I hope he is selected. He may not even get a match... but just to be a part of the Indian 15 or 16 member squad will do good to him.

It will also inspire confidence in the man that his chance in the first 11 is not too far away.

Unless someone gets injured, don't think he'll get a chance in this series...Raina has done enough in the SL series to retain his place...but getting Che in the team is a start for sure :)

yes its a start megha...

i also agree that raina has earned to be the first choice for the available slot... so both (raina and che) know that they can't afford to blink... :)

Good for him. Hopes he gets into the XI and makes it count.

Even if he does not get a chance soon in the XI, this selection would help Che remain motivated. I am happy that he has finally gotten his due!
