“When in quarantine, work from home!” he captioned the picture. Earlier this week, the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) batsman had shared a picture while indulging in a video game session with his daughter.

The profilic No.3 batsman was last seen in action during India’s home Test series against England. In a recent inerview, Pujara had said that the Indians have a fair idea of the opposition attack for the WTC clash, and the Kiwi bowlers won’t mount a challenge on the Virat Kohli-led side. 

Earlier in the day, all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja also uploaded a picture of India’s ‘Rewind to 90s’ sweater. Jadeja wrote, “Rewind to 90’s #lovingit #india,” while sharing the picture of the retro outfit.

The WTC final, scheduled to be played from June 18 at the Ageas Bowl, will be a repeat of the 2019 World Cup semi-final clash against New Zealand.

While the inaugural WTC will be played from June 18-22 in Southampton, the subsequent England series will start at Nottingham (Aug 4-8) and will be followed by matches at Lord’s (August 12-16), Leeds (Aug 25-29), Oval (Sep 2-6) and Manchester (Sep 10-14).

The Indian camp, currently serving eight-day hard quarantine in Mumbai, is expected to fly out on June 2 after all the playing and non-playing members return three negative RT-PCR results.
