The Saurashtra batsman who went unsold at the Indian Premier League auctions, is currently playing in the Vijay Hazare trophy and has helped his team reach the semi-finals of the tournament.
The Test batsman had broken the news on January 1 where he took to his Instagram account to upload a picture with his wife.
Pujara will commence his preparations for India's tour of England earlier than expected as he returns to play for Yorkshire in county cricket. This will be his second stint with the club since 2015 where they won the County Championship that year.
Pujara had a rather forgettable Test series in South Africa as his contribution did not exactly help Team India in terms of their batting as the Proteas attacking unit ripped past the batsmen in the three-match Test series which the Virat Kohli led Team India lost 2-1.
