Speaking of Pujara, this match is not a first-class official. After being sent off early in the first innings, team management felt Pojara needed to spend more time curling up, possibly because he was asked to hit for the other team in the second rounds. The warm-up match is the last chance for both teams to prepare for the one-time test starting July 1st.
