Indian Board President’s XI skipper Cheteshwar Pujara told PTI, “Overall, I have batted at no.3 which, at times, is as good as opening the batting. At (other) times at no. 3 you still get some more time and if there is an (opening) partnership, you can be relax and have a look at the bowlers and the wicket. Overall, since I have batted at no. 3, I have the experience of facing the new ball. Technically I don’t have to make major changes in my batting and, in that way, I am comfortable batting up the order. Overall my preparations are good. Whatever no I will be asked to bat, I will be ready for it.” LIVE CRICKET BLOG: Indian Board President’s XI vs South Africa 2015, 2-day practice match at Mumbai
Pujara also spoke about the unheard of Rajasthan pacer Nathu Singh. “He’s a talented youngster and the most important thing is he’s quick and can still swing the ball. That’s what I observed in the nets. He’s just 20 years old and has a bright future. These sorts of games will give him a lot of confidence if he can perform well. He will learn many things and experiencing this atmosphere will help him become a better cricketer.” READ:Indian Board President XI vs South Africa 2015, 2-day practice match at Mumbai: Preview
