Twitter reacts hilariously at Cheteshwar Pujara’s tortoise like innings in 3rd Test at Johannesburg

The third Test between India and South Africa began on January 24, 2018 in Johannesburg.

Cheteshwar Pujara struggled hard on a green pitch

India is playing South Africa in the 3rd and final Test at the Wanderers stadium in Johannesburg. With series already lost to South Africa, Team India must win this Test to avoid a clean sweep. Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara are battling it hard out on a green top wicket.

India made two changes in the team with Rahane coming in for Rohit and Bhuvneshwar Kumar coming in for R Ashwin. With a green pitch in sight, any captain winning the toss would have chosen to bowl first and take advantage of such a track; but surprisingly, Virat Kohli chose to show confidence on his brittle batting lineup and decided to bat first.

South Africa, too, chose to go into the third Test with 4 quicks and a fast bowling all-rounder in Andile Phehlukwayo and their bowlers were able to generate movement off the pitch and India lost their openers for cheap. Cheteshwar Pujara was struggling to put bat on ball and it seemed like he was troubled so much, that he couldn’t even edge the ball to get out.

Playing dot ball after dot ball, it took Pujara more than 50 balls to score his first runs off the bat. Twitter found that hilarious, apart from the crowd in Johannesburg and the Indian dressing room and tweetd about Pujara’s half century of balls before scoring a single run.

Here are some funny tweets:
