Boxing Day Test: Out for zero for the 9th time, shameful record for the legendary Indian

Centurion (South Africa)
Team India’s senior batsman Cheteshwar Pujara was dismissed on the very first ball without opening an account in the first innings of the Boxing Day Test against South Africa. On Sunday, he was dismissed for a golden duck at SuperSport Park, Centurion, with an embarrassing record to his name. He became the first Indian to be dismissed twice for a duck in South Africa as the number three batsman, while for the 9th time in his career he was dismissed without an account.

Batting at number three, he has become the Indian batsman to be dismissed for the most number of times. Earlier, he and Dilip Vengsarkar had a shameful record of getting out 8-8 times without opening an account. Team India’s coach Rahul Dravid on this batting order, Rahul Dravid, who held the front for a long time, has been out 7 times without opening an account.

Let us inform that the second ball of Lungi Engidi, who came to the 41st over of the innings, hit Mayank’s pad. On a vigorous appeal, the umpire declared not out. After this South Africa took DRS. In replays, the ball seemed to hit the stumps, so the umpire had to change the decision. On the very next ball, Angidi caught Cheteshwar Pujara at the hands of Pietersen. He could not open the account.
