Cheteshwar Pujara are going through some great form in the ongoing Royal London One-Day Cup tournament. He boosted his hundreds in the league with another triple-digit score on Tuesday. Representing Sussex, Pujara scored 132 of 90 balls to help his team reach 400 for four of 50 encounters with Middlesex. Pujara’s Blitzkrieg consists of 20 four-legged ones and a few six-legged ones. The player ran to his century with just 75 balls and scored 32 more of the remaining 15 balls he played before losing to Max Harris.
From the powerful hit to the inside-out to the straight into the ground, Pujara played all-around throughout his century on Tuesday.

On the other hand, Sussex opener Tom Alsop scored the top goal in the innings with 189 of 155 passes. His innings were combined with 19 fours and 5 sixes. Alsop stitched 240 runs with Pujara for the third frame.
Middlesex’s Harris picked up three shots but went 98 of his 10 passes. Meanwhile, Thilan Wallallawita played an economic spell by conceding only 32 runs to his name in 10 rounds.
