Pujara looking forward to play against England in ODI
Rajkot: Talented middle-order batsman Cheteshwar Pujara on Monday said that he would grab the opportunity with both hands if he gets a chance to play against England in the ODI series starting from January 11.
Pujara has been selected for first three ODIs and the venue of the first match is his home ground at Rajkot.
"It`s every cricketer`s dream to play all versions of the game. The selection in ODI is a dream come true for me. I have done well in Test cricket and will try to give my best in limited overs cricket too. I`ll grab the opportunity with both hands if I get a chance to play against England," Pujara, who is playing for Saurashtra in the ongoing Ranji Trophy quarter final match against Karnataka, said.
Pujara has played 9 Test matches so far in which he made 761 runs with three centuries including a double hundred with a healthy average of around 58.
After ensuring his place in the Test squad, Pujara improved his strike rates with an eye to get berth in the limited over cricket.
He aggregated 361 runs in NKP Salve Challenger Trophy played in Rajkot in December in which he struck back-to-back centuries and finished the tournament with an impressive strike rate of 107.
