Shikhar Dhawan playfully teases Cheteshwar Pujara: Irani se Tere liye Naani Trophy ho gayi hai.

Pujara, who leads Sussex in English cricket, was recently suspended for one match as his team was found guilty of various infractions over the course of the season, but mainly in the game against Leicestershire, which they won by a mammoth 499-run margin of 15 runs. The Sussex team were also charged with 12 points.

The veteran batter, who was left out of the Indian team for the West Indies tour, has been in hot form for his club, scoring a ton of runs, including a recent century against Somerset.

The 103 Test veteran last played for India in the WTC final against Australia at The Oval in June, where he made 14 and scored 27.

A month ago, Pujara had also said that being left out of the team made him frustrated at times.

Sometimes you do get frustrated even if you have to prove yourself after 90 Tests and five-six thousand, however many I scored. It’s not an easy thing to do. Sometimes it is is playing on your ego. It leaves you wondering if you’re good enough.

If you have to prove yourself over and over again, (you wonder) if it’s worth it, the 35-year-old musician said on the Final Word podcast.
