Cheteshwar Pujara Tells How Playing County Cricket Helped Him To Come Back In Team India

Cheteshwar Pujara: Cheteshwar Pujara had to be dropped from India’s Test team after his poor performance in the Test series against South Africa. He could not get a place in Team India for the Test series against Sri Lanka in March. Pujara was asked to find form in Ranji matches. Pujara could not find his rhythm in Ranji matches, but playing county cricket in England proved to be effective for him. Playing county cricket for Sussex, he scored centuries one after the other and regained his form. The result was that Pujara returned to Team India only after being out of a Test series. Now Pujara has credited playing county cricket for Sussex for his return.
In a BCCI video, Pujara is saying, ‘When you want to get in form, you want to get your rhythm, you want to rediscover your concentration, then it is necessary that you play some long innings. With Sussex I was able to do that. When I played a long innings against Derbyshire, I realized that my rhythm, my concentration was with me again. After that everything started getting right in its place. So I would say that I had a good time with the Sussexes. Learned a lot here.
