Pujara benefited from aggressive play in England
Did aggressive batting help after facing criticism on England tour? To this Pujara said, “Yes, I feel so. I don’t think there has been any major change in technology. It was just attitude and I was a little bit fearless, which helps.”

He admitted that he was putting more pressure on himself earlier. However, after scoring 91 runs at Leeds and 61 at The Oval, this thinking changed. Pujara further added that you don’t need to put too much pressure on yourself and just try and go out there and enjoy the game, instead of what is happening? Don’t worry too much about it.

‘No problem with the vice-captain’
Pujara is not worried about getting additional responsibility as vice-captain for the Kanpur Test. He said, “Extra responsibility can be good and sometimes works in your favor. But this does not mean that he will not mentor junior players without any responsibility. He believes that being a senior batsman, one should definitely share his experiences with the youth. This benefits the team.”
