I was with Yorkshire in 2015 when we won the County Championship. It's a fantastic team with good bunch of professionals, which helps me become a better cricketer, Pujara told PTI during an exclusive interview at the Kotla today. <p></p> <p></p>According to Pujara, the most beneficial aspect will be playing county cricket at Test venues of India s tour, which will give an idea about pitches and conditions. <p></p> <p></p> Look, playing at Headingley in early English summer with temperatures around 4 or 6 degrees will test any batsmen's technique and temperament. Even scoring a 50 is tough. By the time, India tour starts, it will be bit more pleasant, said Pujara. <p></p> <p></p> Now playing Division 1 has its advantages. I will be playing against Middlesex (Lord's), Warwickshire (Birmingham) and Surrey (Oval) in away games, where India will play Test matches. So I will get a fair idea about the pitches and conditions, Pujara explained further. <p></p> <p></p>For Pujara, there isn t much change technique wise from South Africa to England. <p></p> <p></p> The basics will remain the same but the primary criteria of doing well is respecting conditions. Technically, it s more or less same. I use lighter bats when playing overseas. Also the kind of fight we put in South Africa will augur well for us in England. May be we could have batted a bit better but we were in with a chance in all games, said Pujara. <p></p> <p></p>The 30-year-old cricketer, who has played 57 matches in the longest format, agreed that none of the top Test teams are travelling well. <p></p> <p></p> England s performance in Ashes will tell you that all top teams are struggling a fair bit in overseas conditions. <p></p> <p></p>As the discussion veered towards playing spinners, Pujara agreed that the team will be more well equipped to play Moeen Ali, who had tormented them with 19 wickets. <p></p> <p></p>[link-to-post url= https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/cheteshwar-pujara-johannesburg-track-one-of-the-toughest-i-have-played-on-680652 ][/link-to-post] <p></p> <p></p>"Obviously we will be better prepared but that doesn't mean we can take Moeen or any other English bowler lightly. The best part is we have a fair idea about their core bowling unit," said Pujara. <p></p> <p></p>Talking about South African batsmen not picking Yuzvendra Chahal or Kuldeep Yadav during ODI series, Pujara said: It will be difficult if you can t pick up the variation from wrists. If you can t differentiate Chahal s googly from his flippers, then there s trouble. You have to have an understanding which way the ball would turn.
