Cheteshwar Pujara in talks over Derbyshire return

London: India batsman Cheteshwar Pujara is in talks with Derbyshire over a return to the team for the 2015 season, the English county side revealed on Monday.

Pujara, 26, made a surprise switch to the County Championship Division Two outfit for the closing weeks of this year`s campaign and scored 219 runs in their final three matches.

"We`ve spoken to Pujara already and he seemed quite keen to come back," said Derbyshire`s elite performance director Graeme Welch.

"He integrated into the team brilliantly and I think he enjoyed the lads here. He wants to test himself in English conditions, so this is probably the best place for him."

Pujara disappointed on India`s tour of England earlier this year, averaging 22.20 in 10 innings of his side`s 3-1 Test series defeat.
