Pujara credited Bhuvneshwar’s mental toughness that kept the Indian batsman going during the ongoing lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic. “If you are mentally tough, you can take a long break comfortably. Test matches don’t happen frequently so one has to play domestic cricket. It was not such a big thing for me and to come back from it, I will be fresh and more eager to play. The mental challenge is not an issue for me,” Pujara had said.
