Pujara is the archetypal home track bully. Averages a Smith-esque 65 in Asia but mid 30s away (although that mid-30s would still get him in the England side). Now is his time to show he's matured and improved, rather than just cashed in on home conditions. Certainly has the temperament for this kind of battle imo - if you get in tomorrow there should be runs to be had.

Just checked Rahane's comparable stats - average 33.6 in India and 54.4 away! I remember he was by a mile India's best batsmen when they came to England - Vijay was the only other one who impressed me - but that's a mega record for a subcontinental batsman.
