Cheteshwar Pujara pulled a dravid during the third test match between India and South Africa at Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg.
Cheteshwar Pujara came in to bat at number four when Indian team had already lost two quick wickets to South African bowlers. To tackle the sticky situation, he decided to take his time at the crease before scoring any runs. And well, that time lasted for quite long. He scored his first run after 53 balls and every Indian on Twitter cheered for him… using memes.
Here’s how people on Twitter reacted to the long wait.

Pujara is like a person who walks into a bank without an Aadhaar number.
Just can't open his account.

Although he accelerated his innings after scoring the first run, however he couldn’t last long enough to save the first innings. Pujara got out at after scoring a half century, and soon the battling line collapsed. India is currently failing to even put 200 runs on the board.
