Veteran India batter Cheteshwar Pujara continued his stellar form in the English County Championship, scoring his third successive century for Sussex on Friday (April 29).
Pujara was unbeaten on 128 off 198 balls at stumps on Day 2, hitting 16 fours, to help his side take a substantial lead of 139 runs against Durham, who were bowled out for 223 in their first innings.
Pujara, who was dropped from the Indian Test squad earlier this year, is making the most of his county stint. He now has slammed three hundreds, including a double century in his five innings.
On his debut for Sussex earlier this month, Pujara had scored 6 and 201* to help his side draw the match against Derbyshire.
In Sussex’s 34-run loss to Worcestershire, he scored 109 in the first innings, followed by 12 in the second dig.
