Gaurav Kalra: I know it is like picking up between three of your children of you in a sort of way. But of the three hundreds you have made in Australia, in the three Test Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney. I would like to ask you to pick a favourite. Which one would that be and why?

Cheteshwar Pujara: I think it is Adelaide, without any doubt. The reason is it was the first Test match and when you are playing a four Test match series, I think it is always important to start of well. When you are 1-0 up, it is very difficult to lose a series from there. Obviously, you still need to play good cricket for the next three Test matches but I remember when we were 1-0 down in 2017 against Australia, that is the toughest time to make a comeback. As a team, you need to regroup, you need to think a lot on how to win that series. So, for me I think, yeah scoring that hundred in Adelaide in tough situation is the best hundred I scored.
