Brilliant Cheteshwar Pujara shows his T20 skills

India's Test ace Cheteshwar Pujara showed his aggressive side with the bat after notching a sublime T20 hundred for Saurashtra in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy.

The right-handed batsman hit 14 fours and a six in his unbeaten knock.

However, Pujara's innings went in vain as Railways won the match with 2 balls to spare.
