India batsman Cheteshwar Pujara has rejoined English club Nottinghamshire for the final four rounds of the ongoing County Championship.

Pujara has already scored 223 runs from four matches for the club before his departure for the Sri Lanka series is set to resume his duties as Nottinghamshire bids to gain a promotion to Division One.

Nottinghamshire head coach Peter Moores welcomed Pujara's return and believes his inclusion has boosted the team's morale.

"The great thing is that he has already been in the squad this season and he fitted in so well both on and off the field,” said Moores.

"He is a fantastic player, and since he has been away he has had a great time of it in the Test matches for India.

"So we are getting a guy who is coming back in form and for the team spirit, Pudji coming back in is a huge boost for everybody.

"We have got two really big home games against Northants and Worcester, because it is a chance for us to put pressure on two sides that are up there with us.

"Runs on the board at Trent Bridge is always a big influence and having a player of Test match quality in Pudji is a real bonus."

Nottinghamshire currently are at the top of the Division Two table with 184 points from 10 games.
