Cheteshwar Pujara throws light on the toughest time of his international career

Cheteshwar Pujara, Team India’s ‘Mr Dependable’, is known for his extreme patience and resilience. The Test specialist likes to tire down opposition bowlers through his solid technique and flawless defence.

Pujara, who was recently named in India’s squad for World Test Championship (WTC) final and England Tests, opened up about the toughest time of his cricketing career. The senior Indian batsman spoke about his injury and anticipations concerning its aftermaths.

“When I had my first injury, to come back from it was the toughest time of my cricketing career. The moment our team physio came to and spoke to me that the recovery would be about six months. So, I was so upset; I started crying. I was in a negative mindset at that time. ‘Will I be able to play this game again? Will I be able to play at the international level again?” said Pujara in a YouTube interview on Mind Matters.

The Saurashtra cricketer revealed how his family members and friends kept giving him positive vibes and helped him get rid of the negative mindset.

“So, slowly I started talking to my family members, my father, my friends and they started giving me positive feedback that you will come out of this, don’t worry about it. So, I stopped worrying about my future and started focusing on my present,” added the 33-year-old.

Pujara further spoke about the significance of yoga and meditation in his life, which assist him in handling pressure.

“Once you are in a negative zone, everything around you become negative. I do yoga and try meditation; I do my prayers every day, which helps me to remain in a positive mindset. There was a time when I felt I could not handle the pressure. When I had issues in my younger days, I used to go to my mother and cried in front of her saying that I had a lot of pressure and nervousness and didn’t want to play cricket. But now I know how to handle the pressure,” concluded Pujara.

Stuart MacGill’s girlfriend opens up on the cricketer’s kidnapping by her brother

Stuart MacGill, the former Australian cricketer, was recently assaulted and thrashed after being abducted from a street near his home in Sydney.

On being released, MacGill was so terrified of the incident that he didn’t report it to the authorities for a week. Police then started their investigation and arrested four men in connection with the crime on Wednesday.

However, in a turn of events, .

Sotiropoulos is the sibling of Maria O’Meagher, who is currently in a relationship with MacGill.

The cricketer’s girlfriend finally broke her silence on Thursday and revealed that she, too, is frightened and doesn’t feel safe. O’Meagher went on to add that she lives a very different life from her brother and doesn’t bear any connection with the unfortunate event.

“We are all still frightened … I no longer feel safe (and) I really do not understand what happened. My brother and I led very different lives and although we were brother and sister we weren’t that close,” O’Meagher was quoted as saying by The Daily Telegraph.

On being questioned further, O’Meagher retorted that she isn’t interested in discussing the crime and is gratuitous that her boyfriend is safe. Talking about the grimness of the incident, the ex-Aussie star’s girlfriend commented that her parents and children don’t know about the episode and the best she can do is take care of MacGill and her family.

“Everyone’s fine and everyone’s well, but I’m not interested in talking about what happened. Stuart is safe and we are both OK. Unfortunately, I am caught in the middle of a horrible situation but all I can do is support Stuart and my family. My elderly parents and children are really suffering and I am fearful for them. They are really in the dark about what happened,” she added.
