Known for his red-ball exploits, Cheteshwar Pujara scored his first Twenty20 hundred, twelve years after he made his debut in the shortest format of the game.

Pujara batted through the 20 overs to score a 61-ball 100 against Railways on the opening day of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy.

The Indian No.3 also became the first Saurashtra batsman to score a T20 hundred, surpassing his previous best- a 55-ball 81- against Jammu & Kashmir in 2016.

His hundred, however, was not enough to see Saurashtra past the finishing line as Railways successfully chased down the target of 189 in 19.4 overs.
