Cheteshwar Pujara unlikely to play in home ODI: M S Dhoni

Cheteshwar Pujara

He, however, insisted that it is the Rajkot game he would be focussing on tomorrow.

"As of now, tomorrow's game is the most important, but as I said, it will be a different feeling for me, to go and play in Ranchi after a long time. It's quite similar to the first first-class game I played in my city. But it's very important to stay in the present. From here we move on to Kochi, so let's take care of this game first and then we'll go to Kochi (for the second ODI on January 15). Ranchi will happen (on January 19), nothing really can stop it," he added.

The Ranchi stadium got approval from the International Cricket Council as an ODI venue last October.
