Rizwan and Pujara too had a good batting partnership and got along swimmingly.
“Everyone wants to see Pakistan and India play bilateral series or other matches but the state level affairs are not in the hands of the players,” Rizwan told reporters in Lahore.
Rizwan said he had a good conversation with Pujara on Indian players’ perceptions of playing bilateral cricket with Pakistan.
“I get the impression that players of both sides want to play regularly against each other but we can’t do anything,” he added.
Rizwan claimed he was inspired by Pujara’s professionalism and match preparations and learned from him.
“You learn from being with such senior players. And I picked up things from Pujara mainly from the way he focuses and concentrates while batting,” he said.
The Pakistan vice captain claimed that despite coming from separate nations. He and Pujara were both part of a large cricket family.
