Colombo: Cheteshwar Pujara is enroute to becoming another Cricket legend. Many a times, this man has sent opposition bowling on a leather hunt with his batting technique being very similar to Rahul Dravid aka ‘The Wall’.

Pujara will have another milestone to his name when he will walk in the battlefield of India versus Sri Lanka encounter on Thursday at Sinhalese Sports Club here.

Lastly, when Pujara appeared here, he scored 145 runs in the India dominated game.

In 49 Tests so far, Pujara has scored 3,966 runs at a commendable average of 52.18. The Saurashtra batsman, who is just 34 runs short of 4,000-run milestone, has got three double tons, 12 centuries and 15 fifties to his name.
