However, Pujara’s innings went in vain as Sussex fell short by four runs while chasing Warwickshire’s 310 for six on Friday.
Pujara, India’s batting mainstay in Tests, looked in ominous touch as he slammed three fours and a six in the 45th over off medium pacer Liam Norwell to keep Sussex in the chase.
