Twitter Takes Dig At Pujara As He Drops A Crucial Catch Against SA

Team India is struggling to win the final game at Cape Town against South Africa. The team had to be disciplined and had to enforce the situation on Day 4. However, Cheteshwar Pujara dropped an important catch that demoralized his teammates. In this article, we take a look at how Twitter reacted after Cheteshwar Pujara drops a crucial catch against SA.

Pujara drops a crucial catch against SA

Keegan Petersen is one player who has been in fine form in the ongoing series. The right-hand batsman has contributed some vital knocks to his team. After Dean Elgar fell at the end of Day 2, it was up to him to carry South Africa towards the target. Hence, India needed to get him as early as possible.

Jasprit Bumrah was up to the task early on. When the South African cricketer was on 59, he induced an edge of the batsman. The ball went straight to Pujara’s hands and for a slip-fielder of his standards, the opportunity was too easy to miss. However, Pujara dropped it. The entire team was in shock and Virat Kohli, who was next to Pujara, did not reveal his emotions then. Bumrah, who had sprinted a few metres towards the slip in a celebratory run, also had to stop midway.

Cheteshwar Pujara missing the catch has all but spoiled India’s chances of winning the game. Although Peterson did get out later, the overall impact of the drop was massive.

He was already in line to be dropped but now, it seems certain that he will lose his spot in the playing XI. Twitter was frustrated with Pujara’s show in the slip-cordon and we take a look at some reactions here:
