India has announced its squad for the rescheduled fifth Test match against England. India currently lead the series 2-1. Rohit Sharma will lead the team for the last match, and KL Rahul has been named his deputy. However, what has excited the most among fans is the news of Cheteshwar Pujara making a comeback to the Indian Test team.

The veteran cricketer was dropped out of India’s last Test series against Sri Lanka in March this year. This saddened numerous fans, who believed Pujara should not have been dropped.

With an ambition to get his place back into the side, 34-year old played for the Sussex team in the County Cricket Championship. In the five matches that he played for the club, he scored 720 runs at an average of 120. He also scored two centuries and two double-centuries. His impressive performances helped him get a recall into the Indian Test side.

The Indian squad is scheduled to leave for England on July 15th, with the match beginning on June 1st. Besides, the Men in Blue will also play a three-match T20I series and a three-match ODI series against England.

Meanwhile, the internet was elated to have Cheteshwar Pujara back into the team. A fan pointed out that Pujara has played 95 Test matches so far, and deserves to complete 100 appearances.

“Happy about Pujara making a comeback. He is an important character in India’s domination of test cricket since 2015, currently, on 95 tests, he deserves to play 100 tests. We will move Hanuma Vihari at 5 for the time being. Welcome back Pujji!” the fan wrote.

“Cheteshwar Pujara is back! My day is made!!!!” another happy fan wrote.
