India’s Test specialist Cheteshwar Pujara recently lavished praise on Rahul Dravid, saying that the newly-appointed chief coach’s vast experience will definitely benefit the side.

“It will help most of the players, especially young players who have worked with Rahul bhai during U-19 and India A days. Even experienced players like us, I have played with Rahul bhai.

“I have worked with him during the A series, so all of us are looking forward to his guidance. The amount of experience he has as a player and coach of the team, helps,” Pujara said in a virtual press conference ahead of the team’s training session.

Meanwhile, India skipper Ajinkya Rahane confirmed that middle-order batter Shreyas Iyer will make his Test debut in the first Test against New Zealand after opener KL Rahul was ruled out of the series due to a muscle strain on his left thigh.
