BIO: Cheteshwar Arvind Pujara is an Indian Test cricketer. He is a right-handed batsman who plays for Saurashtra in domestic cricket and for the Royal Challengers Bangalore in Indian Premier League (IPL). Cheteshwar Pujara made his Under-19 Test debut for India against England in 2005. He was also picked in the Indian squad for the 2006 Under-19 Cricket World Cup after scoring three fifties in four innings of the Afro-Asia Under-19 Cup. He was the leading run-scorer of the Under-19 World Cup where he scored 349 runs from 6 innings, at an average of 117. Cheteshwar Pujara was selected for the Indian squad for the 2 match home Test series against Australia in 2010, replacing Yuvraj Singh. He made his debut in the second Test of the series on 9 October 2010 at Bangalore after both Gautam Gambhir and VVS Laxman were down with injuries sustained in the First Test. On 23 August 2012, he made his first international Test century against New Zealand in Hyderabad. He holds the record of scoring three triple centuries within a span of one month, although only the last of these was in a first-class match. He was a part of the India A team which toured England in the 2010 summers, and was the highest scorer of the tour. He is one of the contenders for a spot in the Indian middle order after the retirement of Rahul Dravid and VVS Laxman. In the 2012 NKP Salve Challenger Trophy, he was the highest scorer with two centuries and one half century.
