London: India batsman Cheteshwar Pujara is in talks with Derbyshire over a return to the team for the 2015 season, the English county side revealed on Monday. Pujara, 26, made a surprise switch to the County Championship Division Two outfit for the closing weeks of this year's campaign and scored 219 runs in their final three matches.
"We've spoken to Pujara already and he seemed quite keen to come back," said Derbyshire's elite performance director Graeme Welch. "He integrated into the team brilliantly and I think he enjoyed the lads here. He wants to test himself in English conditions, so this is probably the best place for him." Pujara disappointed on India's tour of England earlier this year, averaging 22.20 in 10 innings of his side's 3-1 Test series defeat.
