Indian batter Cheteshwar Pujara extended
his herculean run of form in the County
Championship Division Two. He breached
the 1,000-run mark in the tournament.


Pujara, who is the stand-in skipper for
Sussex, managed 49 and 46* in the
concluded match against Nottinghamshire. 


Pujara (1,094) is second to Glamorgan's
Sam Northeast (1,127) in terms of leading
run-getters in the ongoing County Division
Two. Pujara is among five batters to amass
over 1,000 runs.


Averaging a phenomenal 109.40, Pujara
has smacked 1,094 runs across 13 innings.
He has slammed five hundreds and three
double-tons (most).


A few weeks back, Pujara became the first Sussex batter to make a double-century against Middlesex at Lord's (231).
