Pujara will be turning out for English county heavyweight Yorkshire in Division 1 with an eye on five-match Test series against England in August. 
“I am looking forward to the county season as we will be playing Test matches in August. I was with Yorkshire in 2015 when we won the County Championship. It’s a fantastic team with a good bunch of professionals, which helps me become a better cricketer,” Pujara said.
According to Pujara, the most beneficial aspect will be playing county cricket at Test venues of India’s tour, which will give an idea about pitches and conditions.
“Look, playing at Headingley in early English summer with temperatures around 4 or 6 degrees will test any batsmen’s technique and temperament. Even scoring a 50 is tough. By the time, India tour starts, it will be bit more pleasant,” said Pujara.
“Playing Division 1 has its advantages. I will be playing against Middlesex, Warwickshire and Surrey in away games, where India will play Test matches. So I will get a fair idea about the pitches and conditions.”
