After the end of the day’s play, Pujara said, that his coach cum father congratulated him for the innings. “He [Pujara's father] congratulated me. People said I missed out on a double hundred but he said you still scored 193 and a double hundred is just a number.” He also went on to say that he refrains from getting chained into a web of thoughts while he is batting. “I think I try and keep my mind blank. For me, batting is like meditation, if you are thinking of something you can't bat. I don't have any thoughts when I am batting,” he explained.
