It will help most of the players, especially young players who have worked with Rahul bhai during U-19 and India A days. Even experienced players like us, I have played with Rahul bhai,” Pujara said ahead of the team’s training session.

Pujara added that Rahul Dravid brings a lot of experience both as a player and as a coach, and it will help the team.

I have worked with him during A series, so all of us are looking forward to his guidance. The amount of experience he has as a player and coach of the team, helps,” he added.

Pujara was asked whether going aggressive after facing criticism for lack of intent helped him in the England series, to which he agreed and said that the only thing different was his mindset, and there was no major change in technique.

Yes, I feel so. When it comes to performing, the mindset was a little different but when it comes to technique I don’t think there was a major change in technique. It was just the approach and I was a little fearless which helps,” Pujara answered to a query from PTI ahead of team’s training session.

You don’t need to put too much pressure on yourself and just try and go there and enjoy the game rather than worrying too much about what’s going around, That was the mindset during the England series.

“So far preparation has been good and experiences of playing in Indian conditions will help in the next couple of Tests,” he further added.
