Pujara created many records, But he missed to break this 58-years-old record by 10 runs

On the first day of the Adelaide Test match, India's middle-order batsmen Cheteshwar Pujara scored a capital knock of 123 runs and took the Indian team out of trouble. Pujara's adventurous innings helped the team to reach a respectable position.

Pujara did break many records after this innings, but he actually missed out on a big world record of 58-years-old, which is the most runs scored on Australian soil on the first day by any visiting batsman.

India fantasy
The record of playing the longest innings on the first day of the Test series by any batsman in Australia is recorded in the name of former West Indies cricket captain and Sir Garfield Sobers.

In Test series in 1960, that is, 58 years ago. Gary Sobers of West Indies made 132 runs on the first day of the Test in Brisbane. This record of Sobers has not been broken till date. Sobers went past English batsmen Morris Leyland, who had made 126 runs in Brisbane in the year 1936.

Pujara scored 123 against Australia, but he missed to break these two records. If Pujara made 10 more runs, then he would have gone ahead of Gary Sobers.
