When a batsman hits a century on the cricket field or the bowler takes five wickets, the crowd in the stadium is greeted with a standing ovation, but occasionally the crowd encourages the player. You laugh. Something similar happened on the fourth day of the Second Test at Lord’s between India and England. Cheteshwar Pujara came in to bat after KL Rahul was out for a century in the first innings. When India were in trouble, they batted slowly and scored their first run of the 35th over.

As soon as fast bowler Sam Karan took the single, the crowd stood up and cheered Pooja. The video of this entire incident is going viral on the social networking site. Former India cricketer Rahul Dravid remembers what happened at the Sydney Cricket Ground. Fans at that time were shouting Dravid-Dravid and now fans are shouting Pooja-Pujara.

Speaking of the match, until the news was written, Pujara had scored 37 runs after playing 186 balls. Here he has found a good mate in the form of Ajinkya Rahane, who runs 46 off 123 balls. 80 runs between the two players so far. With this, India have taken a 100-run lead over England. In this innings, India skipper Virat Kohli is once again flopping and scoring 20 and being the victim of Sam Curran.
