Pujara scored a hundred in his second game for Notts.
Cheteshwar Pujara is having a brilliant county stint with Nottinghamshire. He just scored his first century for them against Gloucestershire, a 112 and impressed one and all, after his terrible debut against Glamorgan.
Pujara joined Notts as a replacement for Australian James Pattinson, after he was snubbed during the IPL 2017 auctions and couldn’t find a team to play in the tournament. Pujara has previously played for Derbyshire and Yorkshire in English country circuit in 2014 and 2015 respectively.

Pujara revealed that he has found two friends in the Notts team that have helped him ease into the life at Trent Bridge. He said that Samit Patel and Stuart Broad have provided Pujara with tips to survive the unpredictable Trent Bridge weather.
Pujara said, “I’ve learnt a few things from Stuart Broad. He was telling me a few things that you need to do to be successful when you’re playing in English conditions. He said as a bowler, the lines he’s trying to bowl, (and talked about) the way he’s bowling especially in the last game in Cardiff where the wicket was tough (which will help me).”
Pujara praised his England counterpart Stuart Broad for his work ethics and his commitment to the game saying, “He was always there, running in and working hard to try and get a wicket for us and even though he didn’t get a wicket for us, the kind of attitude he had on the field was remarkable”.
