 Kolkata : Dependable Test batsman Cheteshwar Pujara, who produced back-to-back big knocks in the Ranji Trophy, was concentration personified during a practice session ahead of the Test series against Sri Lanka.

Pujara, who hit his 12th first-class double century (204) and followed it up with an 182, took throwdowns, a drill that went on for about 45 minutes. It was all about his solid defence but 29-year-old also did not mind playing some hook shots while countering short- pitched stuff as the likes of Virat Kohli and Co. went about their net sessions at the other end.
