Partner When Batting On 99 Or Wife For Haircut? Cheteshwar Pujara Can't Decide Who's Easier To Trust
With salons closed due to the coronavirus pandemic lockdown, Cheteshwar Pujara was left to his wife's mercy when it came to a haircut.
Cheteshwar Pujara got his latest haircut from his wife
He compared the situation to having to trust his partner, batting on 99
His hilarious caption drew a reaction from Jaydev Unadkat
Cheteshwar Pujara, a mainstay of India's Test team, knows just how stressful it is to be stranded on 99, needing just a single run to get to the three-figure milestone. With 18 Test centuries to his name, the right-hander has negotiated this kind of a situation plenty of times. And when you are batting on 99, it is understandable that you would want to steal a quick single to get to your century and take the immediate pressure off, and for batsmen, it is crucial that they trust their partner at the non-striker's end to be in sync and not cause a mix-up.
But for Pujara, trusting his life partner with a haircut may just be a tougher thing to do.
The experienced batsman shared a photo of his wife Puja giving him a haircut amid the lockdown on Instagram and gave it a hilarious caption that may sum up a problem faced by many, with saloons shut amid the coronavirus pandemic.
"Trusting your batting partner for a quick single when on 99* or trusting the wife for your haircut - what takes more courage!" he wrote along with the photo, tagging his wife.
His Saurashtra teammate Jaydev Unadkat enjoyed the cheeky caption and responded with emojis showing a monkey covering its mouth.
Other fans were also amused by Pujara's humour, with one writing "Putting up this caption must have taken a lot of courage for sure."
Pujara has 77 Test caps for India and has scored 5840 runs at an average of 48.66.
