Watch: Lord’s has an epic reaction as Cheteshwar Pujara scores a double-ton for Sussex

Pujara became the first Sussex player to smash a double-ton against Middlesex at Lord's.

Cheteshwar Pujara has been in red-hot form in the County season. It is his debut season for Sussex and he has smashed 5 centuries in 7 matches. This is Pujara’s first outing at the County Championship. As he went unsold in the IPL 2022, he decided to play for Sussex and things have been going his way since then. Against Middlesex, Pujara scored 231 off 403 deliveries. He also helped Sussex surpass their highest score at Lord’s as they put a total of 523. This huge contribution to Sussex earned Cheteshwar Pujara a warm welcome with rousing applause as he walked back to the dressing room at the Lord’s. As he started to walk back after dismissal, a standing ovation from the stands welcomed him warmly.

Currently, with 2 centuries and 3 double-tons, Pujara currently stands at 997 runs in 7 matches. He’s the third highest run-scorer in County Championship Division 2, 2022.
