5. Cheteshwar Pujara (India)
After facing a surprising omission in West Indies, Cheteshwar Pujara made a strong statement on his comeback and scored quite heavily.
In 6 innings against New Zealand, Pujara grinded 373 runs at 74.60 with one century and three half-centuries. He backed it up with consecutive centuries in Rajkot and Visakhapatnam and also made a relevant half-century in Mohali. In home season, India’s no.3 scored 774 runs in 14 innings while overall he produced 836 runs at 55.73.
Since his comeback, Pujara has seemed much more proactive than before. His quick use of the feet and mastery in playing spinners, make him a must to have batsman in India.
