After scoring a duck, Cheteshwar Pujara returns to form with 59 for Yorkshire

By PTI

London, April 21: India batsman Cheteshwar Pujara has opened his account for Yorkshire with a half-century, which enabled the county champions post a fight back on the second day of their First Division fixture against Nottinghamshire.

Pujara, who was out for a duck in the only innings he played against Worcestershire in the last game, where he made his Championship debut, came up with a good show at Trent Bridge here.

His 59 helped Yorkshire finish day two on 226 for three in reply to Nottinghamshire's first-innings total of 428 that featured a double century from England limited overs specialist Alex Hales.

Pujara, who hit nine fours in a nearly three-hour stay at the crease, coupled with Alex Lees (100) to put on a solid 116-run stand for the second wicket.

The Indian middle-order batsman was out to a brilliant catch by substitute fielder Ben Kitt off the bowling of ex-England left-arm spinner Samit Patel.
