“Even in my short career I’ve hit three sixes in three balls but never went for the fourth one because the situation didn’t demand. But someday when I’ll have the situation where I can go all six balls, I might do it,” said the 23-year-old.
Pujara, who scored 153 in the first Test at Galle, said that there is no doubt over the fact that Hardik has the talent to hit six sixes in an over. Meanwhile, Pujara also asked Pandya how he feels about playing the pull shot.
“Definitely you. He (Pujara) pulls it so well that he can easily hit a ball 100 meters easily on any ground,” he said. “I was proud of myself because I know I don’t play the pull shot that well. I’ve not played it till now,” he added.
Without any hesitation, Hardik Pandya said that Cheteshwar Pujara is a way better puller of the ball than him. Pandya has scored 50 in his Test debut and has taken one wicket.
