I shortened my stance on Dravid's advice: Pujara
Cheteshwar Pujara is back among the runs and attributes his recent success to the technical advice received from India A coach Rahul Dravid.
Pujara, who was dropped from the playing XI during the Australia tour, has made a grand comeback having scored a century (145) against Sri Lanka and a gritty 77 against South Africa both on tricky pitches.
While he didn’t want to divulge the secret of his success, he did reveal that Dravid had told him about a employing a shorter stance (decreasing the distance between the feet).
"I have the measurement of what kind of stance I had and the distance between the feet. Now I have a slightly shorter stance and the distance is slightly less (between the two feet). I discussed it with my father and Rahul Bhai before the Sri Lanka series and came down to the conclusion as to what I wanted to do," Pujara said on Thursday.But the right-hander also said that a stance is an individual thing and one should be comfortable while employing a certain technique.
