India’s modern-day wall Cheteshwar Pujara displayed his capabilities with the ball during Saurashtra vs Uttar Pradesh clash In Ranji Trophy 2019-20 and took a wicket in the second delivery of his spell. The spinner dismissed Mohit Jangra in the match and seemed delighted by getting a rare scalp. He was seen celebrating by running all over the field and hugging his teammates. The 31-year old cricketer took to Instagram and shared the footage of the wicket he got. However, his teammate Shikhar Dhawan took the opportunity to pull Pujara’s leg and asked the cricketer to sprint like this during running between the wickets.

“The day when I changed my Batsman status to an All-rounder” read the caption of the video posted by the number four ranked Test batsman. The comment section of the post was filled with praises. However, Dhawan had other ideas and the opener went on to troll Pujara. “Bhai kabhie itne tez sprint running karte waqt bhi maar liya kar. Well bowled waise (Brother, sometimes, sprint like this while running, well bowled by the way)” commented the left-handed opener on the post.
