Dravid: Pujara will find his way back into India side

India

India batting legend, and current 'A' team coach, Rahul Dravid believes Cheteshwa Pujara will find a way back into the Test side after being dropped due to poor form.

Pujara, who took over the number three batting position in the India Test team from Dravid when he retired in 2012, was axed after he endured a poor run of form on the tour to England and Australia last year.

The 27 year-old Pujara will skipper an India 'A' in two four-day matches, against Australia 'A', in the next two weeks and Dravid feels it might just be the perfect platform for the right-hander to remind the selectors of his capabilities.

Dravid, who scored more than 13000 runs in 164 Tests, said: "A player like Pujara will find the way, he has got the desire, the hunger, he is looking to get better, he has got the technique, and he is keen to improve.

"It is just matter of time that he comes back and get a chance to play in the eleven and one or two scores will change things for him.

"I don't think there is too much wrong in him technically. We had a few conversations with him even before coming here. We will try to look at his mind set where he is at."
