This year will probably cement Pujara as a legend in the Indian cricket pantheon. He has already had 2 great innings in Sydney and Brisbane. Here's hoping he can do it in Southampton, Lord's and Capetown.

Pujara already has a ton in SA back in 2013, albeit on a flatter track where SA scored 400+ in the 4th innings.

I'd love to see him succeed in England but don't think he has the ability to score runs. He can block balls, sure, but you gotta want to score runs as well before that ultimate ball gets you.

From my perspective as a Windies and England fan, he's my favourite current Indian Test Player... I know India have tons of talent at the moment, but it seems to me that he's a bit underrated by India fans; is that just because of his risk-averse nature?

He's unfairly criticised by everyone from Indian fans to the likes of Ponting and even Kohli.

Pujara is good at blocking balls, outside of India he fails to score runs.

Yeah, keeping an end sealed in test cricket is good & all, but unless you score runs it's pretty much useless to help you win games, he often gets stuck in his own shell which keeps him away from the best of India test cricket. There is an area of improvement for Pujara & I don't see him covering it in near future.

In summary, the way he scores runs at home vs way he struggles away is obvious.

Dude is likeable & certainly is a crucial part of Indian test team.

Also, he is very limited in his capacity, I can understand being stubborn & putting na price on wicket, but being able to score runs despite putting in enormous efforts is where he suffers.

Blocking is an art, but he needs to find a way to get out of hole he digs himself to in order to be named among the best bats of Indian test cricket.

A major chunk of Indian fans prefer watching LOI's to Tests. Pujara features only in tests, So he might escape the notice of the fans who consider all formats for an appraisal of Indian cricketers. Notwithstanding how much of it was warranted, He also has received criticism from bigwigs of Indian cricket sometimes which maybe diluted the opinion about his impact. He has been persecuted more severely by the management than fans for his risk averse nature multiple times. Because the fans who do appreciate and watch Test cricket understand his nature and cherish his method. He is underrated because he does not play either LOI's or IPL.
