The test match will be played between India and England from July 1. Through this test match, veteran batsman Cheteshwar Pujara will return to the India team once again. Cheteshwar Pujara said that he is happy to return to his form. Along with this, Pujara hopes to do well in the fifth test against England in a few days.

Pujara has credited his performances in Ranji Trophy and county cricket with the Sussexes as he nearly scored two major centuries in both tournaments. Pujara said in a video posted by the BCCI on its official website: “It was important for me to get back into shape and get my momentum back so I could play Test cricket. So when I was playing for Sussex I played my first big innings. against Derby, then I felt like my momentum had come back.

Pujara said 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 great score in the three matches I played for Saurashtra in the Ranji Trophy. After that, I just wanted to enjoy my game and contribute to the success of the team. Above all, the important thing is to pass a good time on the pitch I enjoy playing cricket so whenever I’m on the pitch I want to be able to get the most out of my batting.

Pujara’s success in county cricket helped him return to the Indian Test team. The 34-year-old will represent Leicestershire alongside Rishabh Pant, Jasprit Bumrah and Pramukh Krishna in a four-day warm-up match starting on Thursday. The management of the Indian team has allowed them to play for the opposition so that all members of the visiting group have the opportunity to play a warm-up match before the test match.
