Tendulkar hails contribution of Pujara, pacers in India’s win

Cricket icon Sachin Tendulkar Wednesday singled out ‘Run Machine’ Cheteshwar Pujara for his stellar show in India's historic maiden Test series win in Australia.

Tendulkar was also impressed with the style of play dished out by the Indian team, saying the brand of cricket produced by Virat Kohli and his men in the four-Test series was “magnificent”. India registered its first-ever Test series triumph in Australia since the country's first visit way back in 1947-48, winning matches at Adelaide and Melbourne while losing at Perth before the rain-marred last Test at Sydney was drawn.

“Fantastic. The team has done really well. The brand of cricket that India has been able to produce Down Under has been magnificent,” said Tendulkar here at the launch of “Keep Moving” initiative by IDBI Federal Life Insurance here.
