‘Brick wall’ Cheteshwar Pujara used to be the massive wicket for me after Virat Kohli flew again to India: Pat Cummins

"My preliminary questioning became as soon as that he (Pujara) modified into as quickly as quick due to the fact the brick wall, so as rapid as we spread out his end, I concept that another hand made all three consequences in the recreation possible, winning, dropping, or a draw. But it was once gratifying too: earlier than the series, as soon as we knew Virat (Kohli) used to be going to omit the final three Tests, Pujara used to be the huge wicket for me.
Cummins went on to brush aside Pujara's 5 instances in eight innings, at some stage in the series, whilst batsman gathered 250+ runs in opposition to the tempo spearhead whilst dealing with over 900 deliveries in the four Tests.
"But if anything, he went the different way. He went, 'No, I comprehend my recreation so well, I'm going to simply bat and bat and scoring will take care of itself' - whether or not it is down the different cease or later in his innings...a lot of the time he used to be there simply to face out the difficult spells, bat and bat and bat..."
The 27-year-old pacer additionally hailed Indian wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant, who scored a match-winning 89* on day 5 of The Gabba Test, announcing that the teenager is aware of the sport truly well.
"He (Pant) is a classification player, he takes the task on and to the out of doorways it can moreover exhibit up to be like it is noticeably slapdash, then again, he is conscious of his recreation actually well, he is aware of when to assault and what his scoring areas are, so earlier than subsequent sequence we are going to want to spend a bit of time on that."
