WATCH: Cheteshwar Pujara bats with water bottle in his pocket during 1st Test against Windies

Posted On / /

India’s top-order batsman Cheteshwar Pujara, who scored a fine 86 in his first innings against the Windies at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot, did something probably no other international cricketer ever has.

Pujara, who stitched together a 206-run partnership with debutant Prithvi Shaw, carried a small water bottle in his pocket to keep himself hydrated in Rajkot’s gruelling weather conditions.

In a short video posted by BCCI on its Twitter handle, Pujara was seen drinking water during the over break and then kept the water bottle back in his pocket to resume batting.
