New dad Pujara looks forward to Yorkshire stint to sharpen his game

Bengaluru, February 23: After five years of marriage, India batsman Cheteshwar Pujara became a dad on Friday (February 23) when his wife Pooja Pabari gave birth to a baby girl.

Pujara tweeted the photo of himself holding the baby along with his wife.

So, it's the time of change for Pujara and the Saurashtra man also hopes that his stint in English County cricket with Yorkshire will stand him in good stead.

"I am looking forward to the county season as we will be playing Test matches in August. I was with Yorkshire in 2015 when we won the County Championship. It's a fantastic team with good bunch of professionals, which helps me become a better cricketer," said Pujara

"Playing Division 1 has its advantages. I will be playing against Middlesex (Lord's), Warwickshire (Birmingham) and Surrey (Oval) in away games, where India will play Test matches. So I will get a fair idea about the pitches and conditions," said Pujara.

"Playing at Headingley in early English summer, with temperatures around 4 or 6 degrees, will test any batsmen's technique and temperament. Even scoring a 50 is tough. By the time, the India tour starts, it will be bit more pleasant," said Pujara.
