Cheteshwar Pujara hopes to return to the Test team in India: Cheteshwar Pujara, who was ruled out of the team due to poor performance in the World Test Championship (WTC) final match, has kept his hopes of a comeback alive. The 35-year-old Pujara is currently playing for the Sussex team in the Royal London One Day Cup tournament being played in England. Pujara’s bat also saw a brilliant unbeaten century innings of 117 runs in the match against Somerset.
Cheteshwar Pujara, while talking to Sussex Cricket after this century, said that he has not yet given up hope of his return to Team India. He is confident that if he does well in first-class cricket again in the upcoming domestic season, he could be back in the team.
Pujara said that see, I work only on those things which are in my hands. I try to score big in every match that I am playing. I am still involved in team planning. That’s why I’m sure whenever I start scoring runs in first-class cricket, I’ll be back in the team, but for now I want to live in the present so that I can concentrate on one match at a time.
