India Vs England: Test match is to be played between India and England from July 1. Through this Test match, veteran batsman Cheteshwar Pujara is going to return to Team India once again. Cheteshwar Pujara said that he is happy to return to his form. Along with this, Pujara is hoping to do well in the fifth Test against England in a few days.
Pujara has credited his performances in the Ranji Trophy and county cricket with the Sussexes, as he has nearly scored two big centuries in both the tournaments. Pujara said in a video posted by the BCCI on its official website, “It was important for me to get back in form and get my momentum back in order to play in Test cricket. So, when I was playing for Sussex, I played my first big innings against Derby, then I felt my momentum was back.”
Pujara will play for Leicestershire
Pujara said that he can do well in county cricket, as he had done well in the Ranji Trophy before going to England. He further added, “I found my rhythm and got a big score in the three matches I played for Saurashtra in Ranji Trophy. After that, I just wanted to enjoy my game and contribute to the team’s success. Most of all. The important thing is to have a good time on the field. I enjoy playing cricket, so whenever I am on the field, I want to be able to make the most of my batting.
Pujara’s success in county cricket helped bring him back into the Indian Test team. The 34-year-old will represent Leicestershire along with Rishabh Pant, Jasprit Bumrah and Pramukh Krishna in a four-day warm-up match starting Thursday. The Indian team management has allowed him to play for the opposition so that all members of the visiting party get a chance to play a warm-up match before the Test match.
