# For the first time in Tests, Cheteshwar Pujara registered hundreds in consecutive Tests -- all unbeaten knocks -- 206 & 41 in the Ahmedabad Test and 114 -- against England.

# Pujara's superb unbeaten 114 is his third hundred in Tests -- his first was 159 against New Zealand at Hyderabad.

# With his two hundreds, Pujara took his run-aggregate to 361 without being dismissed -- the most in the current series. The said performance is his best performance in Tests.
