Asked whether Sehwag will go for a scan, the Indian captain said the team needs to speak to the physio about it.<br /> <br /> On match strategy, Pujara said there might be a few changes.<br /> <br /> Commenting on the pitch, Pujara said it looks a good and should help fast bowlers. "The outfield is very nice too," he added.<br /> <br /> Asked whether he would play three fast bowlers, Pujara said he would play them if there is dampness in the wicket due to rains.<br /> <br /> "We will take a call tomorrow morning. See how the wicket looks in the morning. There might be a bit of rain. It looks cloudy," he said.<br /> <br /> On the opening options in the squad, Pujara said the team has an option in the form of young batsman from Kerala.<br /> <br /> On his batting in the last game, Pujara said he was disappointed with the way he got out in both the innings but wants to focus on the ongoing series.<br /> <br /> On Zaheer's fitness, Rajput said he looked fitter and eager to perform.<br /> <br /> Asked how much is about winning these games, Pujara said it is obviously important and youngsters get to learn by playing alongside Sehwag, Gambhir and Zaheer.<br /> <br /> "It is an opportunity for them to share the dressing room with the seniors," he said.<br /> <br /> Pujara said they need not prove anyone but it is obligatory for them to prove themselves again.<br /> <br /> "They have international experience and exposure. For them, this level is exterior option and it is a good opportunity for them," he said.<br /> <br /> On playing this game despite being the number one ranked Indian Test batsman in the world, Pujara said rather than practising in the nets he prefers to play a First-Class game or even a club game.<br /> <br /> "I think, for cricket, it's important to stay in touch with the game. It is a first class game. When you play at the international level, you still want to play a few first class games and feel confident. To improve your game, it's important," he said.<br /> <br /> Asked was it the<a href="http://admin.cricketcountry.com/tags/BCCI/post" target="_blank"> Board of Control for Cricket in India</a>'s (BCCI) decision or his decision to play this series, Pujara said it was a mutual understanding with the apex cricket board.<br /> <br /> "Even I wanted to play," he said.
