“I know how the conditions are, how to score runs, what kind of changes I have to make in my technique”

India batsman Cheteshwar Pujara has revealed that he can be a major asset to the national team if their tour of South Africa goes ahead since he knows what the conditions will be like.

Pujara admitted that India will find their tour of South Africa “challenging”, while also conceding that he had no idea what to expect when the national team tour New Zealand in January 2014.

“These matches will be challenging,” Pujara was quoted as saying by ESPNcricinfo. “Each country will have different conditions. Obviously if the South African tour is there, the good thing for me is that I have played two Test matches over there. I know how the conditions are, how to score runs, what kind of changes I have to make in my technique.

“I haven’t been to New Zealand but I have heard that there is a lot of wind over there. Whatever matches we are going to play abroad, I am very excited about that because it’s always important for a good player to perform in overseas conditions.”
