Indian star Cheteshwar Pujara, who is currently representing Sussex in the ongoing Royal London Cup 2022, exhibited his explosive avatar during a game against Warwickshire on Friday.

The Sussex skipper lit up the Edgbaston ground in Birmingham with his not-so-likely destructive batting. Pujara clobbered 22 runs in an over en route to his scintillating 107 off 79 balls in a thrilling contest.

It all happened during the 45th over of Sussex’s chase when Pujara took medium pacer Liam Norwell to the cleaners, hitting three fours and a six.

Here is how the over went:

44.1: Norwell to Pujara, FOUR, batter stepped outside off-stump to flick over fine leg.
44.2: Norwell to Pujara, 2 runs, full delivery outside off, Pujara dragged it towards the square.
44.3: Norwell to Pujara, FOUR, a good length ball drifting down the leg, flicked by the batter to fine leg.
44.4: Norwell to Pujara, 2 runs, full toss, a mistimed shot over extra cover.
44.5: Norwell to Pujara, SIX, another full toss, and Pujara slapped it over long-off.
44.6: Norwell to Pujara, FOUR, full delivery on the pads and batter played it over mid-off.

Here is the video:

Despite the heroic effort with the bat, Pujara couldn’t take the team home as Sussex fell short of a 311-run target, losing to Warwickshire by four runs with Indian all-rounder Krunal Pandya picking up 3/51. With two wins and as many losses, Sussex sit at the sixth spot in the team standings of Group A, headed by Middlesex. Warwickshire, on the other hand, are in the top four.
