England county team Nottinghamshire signed up Indian Test batsman Cheteshwar Pujara as short-term pay for James Pattinson, who’ll join up with the Australian team this month.

Pujara will join Nottinghamshire in mid-May. Pattinson was chosen in the team for the ICC Champions Trophy.

“I really like playing county cricket along with Trent Bridge is a wonderful venue. I am really excited about my very first experience there as a house player,” Pujara explained.

Pujara was India’s mainstay along with skipper Virat Kohli against New Zealand and England. The fashionable Saurashtra batsman piled up two hundreds against England while he still scored a glistening, unbeaten 101 against the Black Caps.

While Kohli struggled to get among the runs, Pujara stood out using knocks of 92 and 202.
