If Virat Kohli’s upcoming County stint turns out to be dud, his India teammate Cheteshwar Pujara should be put to blame.

Kohli recently signed up to play a few games for Surrey in a quest to acclimatize to the English conditions ahead of India’s tour.

And Pujara, who is currently plying his trade for Yorkshire, has given a tip or two to his teammate Ben Coad on how to unsettle Kohli.

“We’ve already spoken to Puj about how to get him out,” fast-bowler Ben Coad told

“But I might keep that a secret. No, seriously, he’s just said ‘Keep it off his legs’. That seems to be the key. Make him come to you and play a patience game with him.

“I think it will be a bit easier for us at Scarborough with good carry, swing and it nipping around a bit, but he’s a quality player, and we’ll just have to see what we can do.

“It’s a great challenge to have. I want to play against the best players in the world so I can see where I am with my game and what I need to work on.”

However, according to latest media reports, Kohli is open to last-minute changes to his schedule as he might feature in India ‘A’ match against England Lions. He might also participate in  a T20 match against Ireland in the run up.

India’s will begin their tour of England with the first T20 starting July 3.
