I know the conditions in South Africa: Pujara

New Delhi, Oct 8, 2013 (PTI)

The ongoing unofficial Test series between India A and West Indies A has not been a successful outing for Cheteshwar Pujara, but the young batsman is hopeful of turning things around and is looking ahead to the senior team's possible tour of South Africa followed by the confirmed visit to New Zealand.


Pujara, the India A captain, has yet to make a fifty this series.

"These matches will be challenging. 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," Pujara said.

"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," he was quoted as saying by 'ESPNcricinfo'.

Leading the India A side, Pujara hasn't yet scored a fifty in the series.

"I didn't perform to what I have been expected and what I personally feel that I should have done for the team. But you learn from your failures, and it's good that I am failing before the Test matches so that I have got enough time to prepare.

"There is another game, so I am looking forward to this game. I am working hard in the nets and I hope that I will be able to perform in the crucial game."

India A trail 1-0 going into the final unofficial Test in Hubli.
