In his debut for Sussex, Pujara scored 6 and unbeaten 201 to help his team draw the match against Derbyshire.

In Sussex’s 34-run defeat to Worcestershire, he scored 109 in the first innings and 12 in the second.

This run will put Pujara in contention for a place in the Indian team when India travel to England for the postponed fifth Test later this year.

The veteran batsman was dropped from the Indian Test squad after a series loss in South Africa earlier this year.
