Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane have a lot in common. In a candid video interview with his team-mate Ajinkya Rahane on bcci.tv, Pujara explained how he was gradually learning the tricks.

Pujara himself introduced Rahane as someone very similar to him - calm, composed and silent. But Rahane says that marrying Radhika has ensured that he has started talking a lot more.

"I am still learning the art of sledging".

"I'm not that quiet as you have just infact I do like to speak a lot, especially when I'm with my wife".

"I do make a lot of noise while playing Federation Internationale de Football Association".

He added: "Employers are not just struggling to hire the brightest and the best but also people to fill roles such as chefs, drivers and warehouse workers".

"I used to do things like karate, meditation and do yoga as well". Rahane wasn't going to let Pujara have all the fun and he was quick to ask the Saurashtra batsman about his love for Federation Internationale de Football Association to which he said: "I enjoy playing Federation Internationale de Football Association on Playstation".

"I am not as reserved as people think. Sledging is something which is always on the field, if you feel that you need to sledge someone then you need to do it".

Cheteshwar Pujara has never been known for sledging opposition batsmen but he is not averse to the idea if it helps the bowler. "At some stage, you do need to sledge", he said.

"I wanted to take my time initially, but then I wanted to look for the bad balls because we felt that the wicket was going to become risky". I was visualizing the scenario from the dressing room and wanted to unsettle the spinners. "The moment we started using our feet, their spinners weren't quite sure where to land the ball and we could get runs off the backfoot", Rahane replied. "To gain momentum, you need to take risks as playing defensively could put undue pressure on the lower order batsmen". "The last time we toured Sri Lanka [in 2015], I told the fielding coach that I would take 100 catches in every practice session to improve my slip fielding", he said.

Talking of fitness, Rahane revealed that he is off candies and chocolates at present even though he loves them. It is also important to understand that while we often say that carbs shouldn't be consumed, what needs to be kept in mind is the climatic conditions.
