Delhi: India and Pakistan may have stopped playing bilateral ties because of diplomatic reasons, but the cricketers are extremely close to each other and that can be seen during the ICC events. If it was Virat Kohli’s gesture towards Babar Azam last year during the T20 World Cup in Dubai that won hearts, Cheteshwar Pujara recently passing advise to Pakistan’s Mohammed Rizwan at Sussex to overcome his bad run with the bat is making headlines.

“With Pujara, I had a chat with him after I got out early. He told me a few things and one of them was to play close to the body. And as everyone knows, we have been playing white-ball cricket consistently over the past few years and play a bit away from our body. In white-ball, you don’t play very close to your body since the ball doesn’t swing or seam as much,” Rizwan told Cricwick.

The Indian Test specialist has amassed 717 runs in four matches for Sussex thus far. He is also currently the second-highest run-getter in the season. During a recent match against Durham, the duo of Pujara and Rizwan stitched a 154-run partnership; while Pujara went on to score a double-ton (203 off 334 balls), Rizwan hit a brilliant 79 off 145 balls.
