Gloucestershire County Cricket Club have announced the signing of India batsman Cheteshwar Pujara for the first six matches of the County Championship.
Pujara is currently seventh in the ICC Test Batting rankings, sitting only two points behind Australia’s David Warner.
The club say they believe he will bring experience to the side who will be playing in Division One of the County for the first time in a decade.
Pujara is the first Indian player to play for Gloucestershire since Javagal Srinath in 1995.
He will join the squad ahead of the opening County Championship match against Yorkshire at Emerald Headingley on Sunday 12 April.
