Cheteshwar Pujara scored an unbeaten 132 to help India post 273 all-out in the first innings and take a 27-run lead on day 2 of the fourth Test at Rose Bowl Cricket Stadium in Southampton, England, on Friday, 31 August.

Replying to England's 246, India rode on Pujara's brilliantly paced essay which lasted 257 balls and was laced with 16 fours to get past England even after losing wickets in a hurry post lunch.

Along with skipper Virat Kohli (46), Pujara stitched together 92-run third wicket stand to lay the foundation and then joined hands with tailenders Ishant Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah for 32-run and 46-run associations, respectively.

India could not be more proud of Pujara’s very first century in England. Twitter is proof!
