What did Cheteshwar Pujara say
On this taunt of Kaif, Pujara said, “Kaifi bhai is running, that is enough for me. I think the bat talks too much. It is better to celebrate as many runs as possible and contribute for the team, that is very important. The team has also realized over a period of time that the way I bat is very important. I will just keep scoring runs like this and it is not my nature to celebrate much.
