Growing up playing cricket in Rajkot all those years back, under the watchful eyes of my father, I would never have imagined the journey would bring me here. Thank you for all the support and wishes. Look forward to contributing lots more to the team," Pujara tweeted.

He also left a cheeky little note informing another reason to remember the date.

"P.S. Coincidentally, today also happens to be the wife's birthday, so Puja has ensured I will never forget this date."
