Cheteshwar Pujara got a compliment from Sunil Gavaskar, who said the young batsman was a complete Test batsman, whose temperament was the hallmark of his batting.

“He's a terrific player. He has shown that he is a complete Test batsman. After the Ahmedabad Test, he has shown his mettle and he'll be able to do it in abroad as well,” Gavaskar said.

“The way he build up his innings shows that his temperament is terrific ans it is temperament which separates men from boys,” Gavaskar said.

India's top order struggled on a turning track but Gavaskar said it was a bit worrisome but there was no need to panic.

“It’s not as if they have failed. It’s difficult wicket to bat.”
