In the 1st innings of the 1st Test in Adelaide, Cheat eshwar Pujara was caught behind when he nicked a Bouncer to Tim Paine, The Aussies appealed for the Caught behind but the Umpire turned the decision down in favour of the Batsman - But Cheat eshwar Pujara knew that he had nicked the ball to the wicket keeper.
A Gentleman that he is Mr. Cheat eshwar Pujara refused to walk and continued Batting to score 123 runs from the 89 where he was clearly out but Aussies did not use the DRS appeal.
The additional 34 Runs that Man of The Series proved to be the Deciding factor and it eventually turned out to be the Losing Margin for Australia in Adelaide and they ended up losing the series 2-1
So yes, Mr. Cheat eshwar Pujara is Definitely Not Normal - He is a shameless ethic less Cricketer who plays depending upon the situation and is not worthy of emulation like Adam Gilchrist or other Cricketers who were genuinely moral, truthful, ethical and had sportsmanship qualities.
In their own special way, we should really respect and praise them and learn to be like them instead of criticizing them, when we all know we common people are nothing in comparison to these great heroes. They have shaped themselves through great discipline and hard work and deserves all praise and respect irrespective of their match wise success and failures.
Deeply touched by this article, when a father bestows on his Son such touching words the world should agree that Cheteshwar is a GEM. I thoroughly pay my tribute to such a wonderful Mother. The upbringing of the best Test Batsman has to be emulated by parents to bring in many more Pujara's for India.

You are right Soumitra, we Indians tend to focus on negative things more. Same thing with Ravindra Jadeja, his struggle to come up was forgotten after a couple of failures.
