    Debut series bro. Thank heavens he is not a Pakistani. Else, one bad series and he would have been kicked out(Remember Jamshed?) You allow youngsters a couple of bad tests from time to time. Builds character. They are not robots who will average 40+ everywhere.

    Next time he will score more I am sure.

    Very promising sign that for him and Indian cricket, another good thing is that those hundreds have been big ones. So this is a guy who likes to carry on and hit big ones and thats all you want from test batsman. A typical product of Indian domestic circuit where hundreds are seen as nothing and only massive double or triple hundreds are considered worthy of praise. One good thing about our cricketing culture.

    He was never from Dravid's school of batting..! I wonder if I'm the only one who thinks this lad resembles Laxie! Che, like Laxman, will score fast and quick on tougher pitches rather than sit and duck! Will come handy in South Africa later this year

    Nahh! He's most definitely a Dravid wannabe. Laxman was lazy elegance, just sheer talent. Pujara is too intense, obsessed with his technique and never trying to do anything silly. All of that reminds you of Dravid and of course Dravid wasn't always a dead duck, when in flow runs came quickly off his bat as well. Rohit Sharma and even Murali Vijay remind me of Laxman actually as they are casual players.

    No, he resembles Dravid more than anyone else in the team. He has a methodical and disciplined way to play his shots, he is a well oiled machine - he does not play risky looking elegant shots like Lax (and hence will not get surprised at the manner of his own dismissal like Lax!). He may be a bit faster than Dravid, but that is because nearly all batsmen today score faster than the batsmen who debuted in the 90s and 80s.

    Jamshed didn't even get the entire series.

    They don't know how to bring up their batsmen, Pakistanis. Firstly they should have persisted with Taufeeq Umar who was the proven test bat and had scored runs in South Africa before. Instead they got carried away because Jamshed scored what was basically a half-century or two against Ishant Sharma and B Kumar.

    Not sure about that. Toffee Kumar played well against SA about 10 years ago and apart from that dream series he has not generally fared very well against other bigger teams. If you take out SA and the minnows Bang and Zimb, he averages only 28.

    Slow run rates for big centuries these days are rare, especially when you are not trying to save matches. Even Dravid scored many of his bigger knocks with a decent strike rate, for example his 270 at Rawalpindi came with a S/R of 55. Today he paced his innings well in the second half, but Pujara's career S/R is only 48 inspite of playing most of the matches at home, so I would like to monitor his strike rates for at least a couple of years before pronouncing his strike rates decent.

    wow. The guy has appetite for big scores. Hopefully he can get runs in SA. He did not look very comfortable against the short ball today, on a dead pitch.

    They grow in academies. Where raw talent is molded into disciplined medium pace swing bowlers and accumulating batsmen who know well how to score big when they're set. You've really got to give the respect to domestic bullies, they are run machines really at least in home conditions. These guys like Wasim Jaffer, Che Pujara are basically Gods in our domestic circuit.

    This. Our coaches at academies never encourage fast bowlers to bowl fast! They ask them to maintain line and length even if at slower pace... And as someone pointed above, 100s are not enough in India. You need to score big 200s to get some recognition

    pujara has complete game
    also no need to compare him to dravid or laxman ..he has his own style!
    not the classiest batsman form india but really really effective most of his shots are safe and his back foot game is good enough ..and with sound basics like playing with soft hands and leaving the balls which are out side off stump i have no doubt he will do well..

    even if he does not there is no need to criticize being this good at home is big achievement in itself imo!

    Dont get too excited. Pujara averages 10 away from home. Playing all games on dead home tracks will make him look better. Imagin he had to play all games away from home like Hafeez, Jamshed & Umar Akmal.

    Couldn't agree better. Post Marriage(or Engagement) only Ashwin and Pujara seems to be doing well for our team. Gauti went downhill very very fast.

    he leaves alone most balls will have to play those beauties swining from stumps but who does not struggles against them ?

    India seems to have decent batsmen coming through all the time, it's a pity that they can't produce decent fast bowlers. The few who have shown promise, have been plagued by injury.

    no i dont
    ur trying to prove that he will always struggle based on one instance where the ball swing from leg stump and steyn was at his best and pujara was still a rookie

    hope u can be little more objective
    also whats with this logic im seeing here..
    pkaistan lose vs south africa and we see comments abt how south africa will struggle in uae
    now pujara does well at home and we see comments bat how he will struggle in south africa...
    when series will come then we will talk..

    also see the dismissal again i cant emphasize enough but see the ball!
    it swung from leg stump and he was still covering it pretty well playing it straight just a pure brute of a delivery nothing wrong done by pujara here!

    you know what the problem is..had any young australian or english batsman played like htis at home hw would have been hailed as next bradman and we are trying to underplay his achievements here
    he played well vs england and now vs australia
    they dont know how to get him out in these conditions isnt that impressive from a young batsman who has played 11 test matches?

    so whose technique is good enough to counter a ball which swings from leg stump to middle at pace?

    well according to every expert who has seen him..its a good technique ..
    also whats wrong with it ? it suits his style
    his head is always on top of ball while playing and his stance allows him to change position of his bat when ball swings and play late..(in simple terms he can adjust late and is not rigid )
    also his back foot play is good if u saw him bat u will know..

    honestly i dont think u know much bat batting so i wont waste my time but i have seen lots of young batsmen come with strange techniques and hammer every one.. (see my user name ;) )

    Azhar Ali is a one-dimensional batsman.

    At least he can breathe easy now that Pakistan don't have an away tour in ages to challenging conditions. The likes of him and Jamshed are good enough to score runs in the UAE, with the occasional hop over to the West Indies/Zimbabwe.

    Haha average don't mean squat. Grinding out 50 off 200 balls on a road is no achievement and I daresay costs your team a chance of a win. Bullies Need not be frenetic like Sehwag but they should score at a decent pace. MoYo, Inzi were Ftbs. Azhar is just a good performer on flat tracks.

    I wouldn't be too worried about initial bat position. Well key is in the movement of his feet.... His feet move quite well and when bat comes down there isnt a gaping hole between the bat and pad.

    Well, I wouldnt rely on commies comment. We will never know if any other batsman would have dealt with that. However that doesn't mean that Pujara hasn't got potential.
    I hope he doesnt ends up like Jonathan Trott.

    +1
    his head is on top of ball at point of contact (that means he can move the bat late and adjust ) also he is always has so much time while playing ..pace will never be a problem..not with the solid back foot game he has!

    another complete player who needs to be in team asap is rayadu.. i have been asking form these to be in team for such a long time now...hope we get rid of raina for good
