On the fifth and final day of the Centurion Test between South Africa and India, Cheteshwar Pujara needed to be the central figure for his team as they aimed to chase 287 to keep the series alive. But what happened in the early part of the morning session was quite the opposite as Pujara ran himself out. The right hander’s dismissal in this fashion in the second innings means, he now has the unenviable record of being the only Indian batsman to have been run out in both innings of a Test match. The last time a batsman was run out in both innings was New Zealand captain Stephen Fleming in 2000. Pujara's now also becomes the 25th batsman to be be run out in both innings of a Test match.
