Pujara, who was not part of the IPL, would have been relieved to face some quality bowling as he aims to get back his batting rhythm after a long break.

In the video posted by BCCI on Instagram, Pujara watchfully plays out the fast bowlers in his trademark style.

'The wait is over. @cheteshwar_pujara is back in the nets and is back to doing what he loves the most. Bowlers be prepared for a long workout,' the CCI captioned the video.

Pujara scored 521 runs with three centuries in India's Test series in Australia in 2018-2019.

'Every one does talk about Virat (Kohli), but Pujara is a superstar in his own right,' Australian Off-spinner Nathan Lyon said in an online Q&A with NewsCorp readers on the HeraldSun Web site on Thursday.

'Not as flashy as Virat or Rohit (Sharma) but his record stands out. He's a very talented batsman and able to bat long period of time.'
