Ignored for Australia Series, Cheteshwar Pujara Vows to Make a Comeback in Shorter Formats

It’s safe to say that Cheteshwar Pujara has cemented his place in India’s Test squad. But, he’s yet to stake his claim in shorter formats of the game, which apparently has concerned him as he sets his eyes upon making a cut to the Twenty20s and One-Day Internationals (ODIs) in the near future.

“I am confident that I can do well in T20s or 50 overs,” Pujara was quoted as saying by DNA India. “I have done well in domestic one-dayers and have scored good amount of runs. I know I am capable of playing in all formats. It is just a matter of time,” he added.

The 27-year-old Pujara, who was ignored by the selectors for India’s upcoming limited-overs series against Australia, expressed his disappointment at being overlooked, but vowed to add a few more shots to his arsenal to aid his quest of making a comeback in the near future.

“I am working on certain areas and am looking to improve, trying to bring in a few more shots that will help in all formats,” divulged the Saurashtra lad. “I will do well in the coming years since I am working on it. Whenever I will get an opportunity I will do well.”
