India still hopeful of chasing 350, says Pujara

INDvSA  : “To be honest we don’t want to chase too many runs but at the same time, the way the wicket is behaving, I think, anywhere around 350 will be chaseable,” Pujara said. “First innings, the top-order obviously didn’t click but second innings I think we will put up a better show and if we continue to bat well, we can definitely get more than 350.

“They bowled in the right areas obviously, but at the same time we knew what we wanted to do. We almost got that, I think. Rohit got out but otherwise we were trying to build a partnership and we almost got it. So, overall in the first session, we lost just one wicket and overall we did bat well today. The minus point was losing three wickets yesterday, that’s where I think we should have batted better. But overall I think we are in a good position. We got two wickets today and if we bowl well tomorrow, and if we are chasing somewhere around 350, I think, we are very much in the game,” Pujara said.
