“It is a tough pitch to score runs on. I feel if you look at it.. the first two days the number of runs I scored, which are very less. I would say scoring 200 in a day is a tough task, so I think we have enough runs on the board," Pujara said after scoring the slowest Test hundred of his career. He also went on to say that the pitch has already started deteriorating and then there was a variable bounce. “From tomorrow onwards it will not get easier to bat and our bowlers have been bowling well so I would say we have enough runs on the board," Pujara added.
