Cheteshwar Pujara has begun to improve his bowling skills besides his batting practice. He said that he wants his bowling to get better so that he can offer a part-time bowling when his squad wants. Pujara had been a consistent performer in the Indian ODI side, but he has been terminated from the team. Selectors put him in the reserved players queue. He took the opportunity to meet the international level against Zimbabwe only when the senior players were taking rest. This incident made former Indian skipper Gavaskar annoyed and he openly has thrown his ‘favoritism’ fact.
The same thing has brawled after India’s batting disaster in Kiwi country. Indian batsmen became unsuccessful again; still Pujara did not get the chance to play.
Right now Pujara does not want to get affected by these facts. He is only drawing a bead on how he can be a part of the national team in the 2015 ICC World Cup.
“I have likewise started in the stadium in the nets so that I can contribute as a part-time bowler,” Pujara told PTI. “I want to serve my squad with my part-time bowling if the captain wants me to. I am counting to bring improvement in my game, most important being playing on the ascent. I am targeting specific fields, which include depth psychology of my batting and what faults I am confiding in the midriff. It will help me in the long run.”
He played as a bowler in 10 innings in 91 first-class games. He is aiming towards Indian Premier League too; he played 24 matches in four seasons and scored 265 runs with a strike rate of 99.25.
“If I can prove myself in the IPL, I am convinced that I can bring success in ODIs too,” Pujara, who is moving to run for Kings XI Punjab in this edition, stated. “I had met a pair of good innings for my last franchise RCB, which showed that I have the talent to surpass in the short format also. It’s entirely close to receiving more opportunities in the coming future. I am looking ahead to have a successful IPL.”
He is trying and working hard on his practice in order to take a chance in the squad on the national team in World Cup 2015. “I do like to play one-day format. Especially with the 2015 World Cup coming up, I hope I find a chance to play in that team. As a cricketer, everybody dreams to play the World Cup for India and when I was running one of the Ranji games India won the 2011 World Cup, and we all were following the game and we felt truely proud of India winning the World Cup. And when you accept the chance of serving the country and be part of the team it will be a different notion. And there are a few things I am working on to be part of the one-day team.”
