Cheteshwar Pujara: A rising star in Indian cricket
Cheteshwar Arvind Pujara, playing for Saurashtra in domestic cricket and currently serving his duties for RCB in Indian premier league and most importantly a member in blue brigade Team India.

Pujara, who has been recently adjudged ICC's emerging player of the year 2013 ( August 7, 2012 to August 25, 2013). He played 10 test matches in this period. In 17 innings, he scored 1073 runs with an average of 82.53.

The 25-year old right hand batsman started his domestic career in the year 2005. In the same year, Pujara made his Under-19 test debut against England. While opening the innings he scored 211 runs which guided India to a win by an inning and 137 runs, from where Pujara never looked back.

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.
