Melbourne. Ricky Ponting questioned India’s ‘baffling’ approach with the bat, suggesting Cheteshwar Pujara’s slow century could cost them a victory in the third Test against Australia in Melbourne. Pujara scored 106 off 319 balls, while Virat Kohli made 82 off 204 as India declared on 443 for 7 from close to 170 overs. It was Pujara’s slowest century.
It was so slow that it started competing with the sleeping pills. Many fans who were getting up in the morning to see India’s batting were seen sleeping in the morning and missing office after watching Pujara’s batting.
Indian scientists have done some research after collecting video samples of Pujara’s batting and they think it has all elements to compete with the sleeping pills available in the market. As soon as the scientists made their observation public, the sleeping pills manufacturers were seen demanding a royalty from Pujara’s family outside his house in Rajkot.
It is not yet clear whether Pujara will give in to the demands, while the sports ministry has ordered a committee to formulate a law which shows that how much slow innings should be considered as a competition for the sleeping pills.
