Aus v Ind: Pujara makes the slowest half-century in Test history, records such a marvel

Sports Desk: Cheteshwar Pujara, the middle-order of the Indian team, is known for his marathon innings. Once again a slow innings was seen with Pujara's bat but his innings brought the Indian team into trouble. Pujara scored a half-century during the third Test match but his half-century was extremely slow. Pujara was dismissed immediately after scoring a half-century and left the team in difficult conditions.

Slowest fifties in test history

Actually on the third day Pujara and Indian captain Ajinkya Rahane came to bat. Pujara kept thrashing the Australian bowlers from one end and scoring slowly. He faced 174 balls to make a half-century and with this, he has also made the slowest half-century in Test cricket history. Pujara also hit 5 fours during this innings.

Broke your record 

Pujara has not batted so slow for the first time but he has also played such innings in the past. Pujara completed his half-century in 173 balls against South Africa in the year 2018. Once again, he has hit a half-century off 174 balls against Australia, breaking his old record.

The BCCI decided to postpone IPL-2021 indefinitely due to increasing cases of corona. With this, all the players participating in it, the support staff and those involved in the commentary panel, returned to their homes. Former India and Bengal cricket team player Laxmiratan Shukla was also part of the IPL commentary team. After the postponement of the league, Shukla has done a winning job. He has decided to pay the entire fees from IPL commentary to the West Bengal Chief Minister Relief Fund to deal with the Corona crisis. Shukla gave information about this by tweeting.

Shukla took this decision on his birthday on Thursday. Shukla was the Sports and Youth Affairs Minister of the state from 2016 to 2021. He said goodbye to politics earlier this year. He was a Trinamool Congress MLA from Howrah North region. He has also played three ODIs for India. He has also participated in 47 IPL matches. He said, "I am happy that I am able to give the earnings from the IPL 2021 commentary on the day of my birthday for the good of the state." Whatever I am, I am because of people. If my contribution makes any difference on my birthday, I will consider myself lucky.

Many more cricketers have helped

Before Shukla, many cricketers who played in the IPL have come forward to help India in this epidemic. Australian fast bowler Pat Cummins decided to help the PM Cares Fund. Apart from them, Shikhar Dhawan, Jaidev Unadkat, Pandya brothers also announced their help. Sachin Tendulkar, Brett Lee have also helped. Delhi Capitals and Rajasthan Royals also announced help in the fight against this epidemic.
