Whenever we talk about B-town love stories, Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli's love story tops our list.

In that aspect, he feels Pujara has surpassed the Indian legends Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid.

On Tuesday, the country's Prime Minister and former cricket captain, Imran Khan, congratulated India on becoming the first Asian team to win a Test series in Australia. Along with (Pujara), (we) can not ignore the bowlers' contribution. Pujara has been really outstanding.

On three successive overseas tours in the past year - South Africa, England and Australia - the Indian fast bowlers have done exceedingly well.

Australian spinner Adam Zampa played in that T20 and expected the Indian fans to outnumber the locals by a big margin again with scenes he likened to a "mini New Delhi". Tendulkar had an interesting take on what exactly led to this "cultural change".

In his letter to investors, Cook blamed much of the shortfall on China, where the company underestimated a decelerating economy. He said that they had held no such discussions since the third quarter calendar quarter of 2018.

"These factors have contributed a lot, not to forget the infrastructure, which is really good in India". Not to forget the infrastructure, which is extremely good. "We were beaten by a better side", he conceded. "It was pleasing to see pacers bowling consistently at above 140kmph".

"They will be very buoyed and excited but we plan to fight for every thing". But it's also not just to do with the things I have mentioned; the guys are also talented. And how consistently one can bowl 140-plus. "As always we will look to prepare well and win the World Cup", he said. "Whatever your age is, you want heroes in life".

"IPL, I think, has had a tremendous contribution, in building character". I still remember that when I was a 10-year-old, and didn't know much about cricket. "I think, we are in that fortunate position to go out and dominate world cricket", added the legendary batsman. And that's where my journey started.

"Hopefully, there are many journeys which have started already".

Tendulkar said he would like to see more "difficult and challenging pitches" rolled out in domestic tournaments. It would help lift the standard of play. Hope it continues to get better and better, the facilities for the players. Keep surfaces which are challenging for batters. It does not, however, mean that the bowlers should just roll their arm over.
