Cheteshwar Pujara keen on getting back to domestic cricket, ​to play county during IPL 2019

first_img4th Test, Day 5, Brief Scores: India 622 for 7 declared (Pujara 193, Pant 159 not out, Jadeja 81, Lyon 4 for 178) vs Australia (300 all out; Harris 79, Kuldeep 5 for 99) & 6/0 (Harris 2*, Khawaja 4*). Match ended in a draw. Full ScorecardFormer Australia captain Ian Chappell perfectly summed up Cheteshwar Pujara’s contribution to India’s historic Test series in Australia.”While the Australian cricket team was keeping a wary eye on Virat Kohli, Pujara snuck up from behind and executed the perfect mugging. In addition to helping India win a series for the first time in Australia, he frustrated a top-class opposition attack to the point of submission,” Chappell had written for ESPNCricinfo.While the pre-series build-up was all about Virat Kohli, the Indian No. 3 batsman stole the show Down Under with his monstrous hunger for runs. Pujara, on Monday, walked away with the Man of the Series award after scoring 521 runs from seven innings and more importantly playing out 1258 balls and 30 hours during India’s 2-1 win.However, India’s hero in Australia, Pujara will not be playing international cricket in the near future with India set to play quite a lot of white-ball cricket, including the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 and then the World Cup in England.Pujara though has his plans set for the upcoming season. The in-form batsman, unlike quite a few of his teammates, will be heading to India to play for Saurashtra in the ongoing season of Ranji Trophy.Pujara did not find a buyer at last month’s IPL auction despite having been available for a base price of Rs 50 lakh. Nonetheless, Pujara will be spending the time away from all the glitzy and glamorous cricket season in England, playing the County Championships.advertisementDespite stressing that Test cricket will be his priority, Pujara has not given up on his dreams of playing white-ball cricket for India. The 30-year-old last played an ODI for India in June 2014.”I’ll be playing some first-class cricket back home. During IPL, I might be playing county cricket. Next Test series is 6-7 months away. Will give me enough time to prepare. I’ll work hard on my game to play white-ball cricket. But Test cricket is my priority, it’ll always remain my priority,” Pujara said on Monday.Cheteshwar Pujara: can bat, can’t dance?Celebrations have well and truly begun for Team India! #AUSvIND pic.twitter.com/XUWwWPSNuncricket.com.au (@cricketcomau) January 7, 2019Pujara also credited his last stint with Yorkshire at the County Championships for his success in Australia. The India batsman had scored 370 runs in eight matches in 2018 for the English side.”As a batsman, you just need to get used to pace and bounce. Playing in different conditions, in South Africa, in England, in county cricket has helped me improve my technique. For me it’s about the right preparation,” Pujara added.Thanks to Pujara’s centuries, three of them, Virat Kohli’s men became the first-ever Indian team to win a Test series in Australia. After winning in Adelaide, India lost in Perth but a Pujara ton, his second of the series, in Melbourne helped the world number one Test side bounce back and clinch an unassailable 2-1 lead. The fourth and final Test ended in a draw after bad weather ate away most of the play on Sunday and Monday in Sydney.Also Read | Cheteshwar Pujara just can’t dance: Watch India stars celebrate historic winAlso Read | Australia series win proudest moment of my 10-year career: Virat KohliAlso Read | Best Indian side I have been part of, says Cheteshwar Pujara after series-winning 521 runsAlso See:last_img read more
