New Delhi: India's Test specialist Cheteshwar Pujara after a stupendous home season could now find takers in the Indian Premier League with some important players pulling out from various teams.
Pujara, who had a base price of Rs 50 lakh went unsold at the IPL auctions last February.
There are teams which are in need of top-order batsmen including Kings XI Punjab and Delhi Daredevils. Incidentally, Pujara's last IPL appearance was for Kings XI Punjab, wherein he opened for the franchise in a few games that he played.
For Daredevils, who have been handicapped by absence of JP Duminy and Quinton de Kock, it may not be a bad idea to have Pujara as a replacement considering his experience at the highest level.
The IPL rules allow any franchise to pick an Indian as replacement if any overseas player is ruled out.
