“Puzz wanted to step up in Tom’s absence, and he saw potential in this respect and has been a natural leader since joining,” manager Ian Salisbury said in an official statement. “Pinny did a great job for us after Tom was injured and will remain the oldest of our bowlers,” he added. Pujara returned to India’s XI match for the scheduled fifth Test against England in Edgbaston, thanks to Sussex’s strong performance. “Getting the batter to take the role means the pin can focus on leading our offense.
