The year 2010 was of full of happiness for Pujara as he was selected for Indian Test squad for two test match series against Australia replacing Yuvraj. And after two years he made first international test century scoring 159 against New Zealand. Afer this knock Pujara said with his ''second debut'', he became a regular in the Indian test squad but he is yet to play for India in shorter version of the game.
As an Indian opener Sehwag was struggling as he was out of form. ln the year 2012, it provided an opportunity for Pujara to prove his ability in shorter version of the game, as he was selected in the 15 member squad of the ODI series against England but could not make to the playing side because of the injury, following injury he made his debut against Zimbabwe in the year 2013.
It can be appropriate to say that now Indian cricket's future is in safe hands.
