Cheteshwar Pujara becomes the first Indian batsman to get run-out twice in a Test match, here's the full list!

Cheteshwar Pujara would want to forget the Centurion Test as early as possible for creating an unwanted record

India’s top order batsman Cheteshwar Pujara today entered the record books for all the wrong reasons. Pujara became the first Indian batsman to get run out in both the innings of a Test match. Pujara got out for a golden duck in the first innings of the second Test at SuperSport Park, Centurion. On Day 5, he got out in a controversial manner trying to take the second run in the first session. His run out turned out to be a game-changing one as India got bundled out in the first session thereby losing the Test as well as the entire Test series.

This is the first instance in 17 years that a batsman got run out twice in a single Test. He also became the fifth batsman to record a duck in one of the two innings where he also got run out. The only batsman who got run out for two ducks in a Test match is Windies batsman John Trim. The 29-year-old is the 25th batsman overall to achieve this feat.

Indian batting lineup once again put up a disappointing feat after they got all out for 153 runs in the second Test. They failed to win the Test series and thus missed a chance to claim victory in the South African soil. Lungisani Ngidi shattered the Indian batting lineup and claimed a six-wicket haul on his debut. He was awarded man of the match for his effort.
