India batter Cheteshwar Pujara took to social media platform Koo on Saturday to share a beautiful family photo with his daughter and wife. In the photo, the trio are all smiling as Pujara spends his last day with his family before joining the Indian group before the tour to south africa. “Last day at home before another tour begins! Looking forward to the challenge ahead, but will miss these two. #Bittersweet #familytime #ontothenexthallenge #IndVsSa,” Pujara wrote in the caption accompanying the photo on Koo.

India will leave for South Africa in the coming days, with the bilateral series starting with the Second Christmas Day Test in Centurion on 26 December.

India will play three Tests and three ODIs as part of the tour. The tour was recently rescheduled amid concerns over the new Omicron variant of the coronavirus.

India were also scheduled to play four T20Is in South Africa, but those matches will be played at a later date.

Pujara, on the other hand, will want to rediscover his form in South Africa after struggling with the bat lately.


Pujara has not scored a century in his last 17 Test matches and has averaged less than 30 averages in that period.
India’s bowling coach Paras Mhambrey recently said that Pujara, as well as his fellow batsman Ajinkya Rahane, have the support of the team, despite the poor play.

“I think both with Ajinkya Rahane and Cheteshwar Pujara, they have enough experience behind them. They have played enough cricket and we also know as a team that they are one turn away to get back in shape. If a team is “everyone behind them and to support them. We know what value they bring to the team. They have played enough cricket to understand what is expected of them,” Mhambrey said in a press conference earlier this month, as quoted by the news agency ANI.
