London, April 13: India Test batsman Cheteshwar Pujara's Yorkshire debut was a forgettable one as he fell for a 6-ball duck against Worcestershire today.

Pujara, who was signed by the English county side as a replacement for Pakistan's Younis Khan, was caught by Tom Fell at third slip off Gareth Andrew on Monday, the second day of the four-day first-class County Championship match.

The Number 3 Test batsman will be with the county side till next month. He is only the third Indian after Sachin Tendulkar and Yuvraj Singh to play for Yorkshire.

Pujara's Yorkshire debut happened yesterday at Worcester's County Ground. Batting first, Worcestershire scored 311 all out in 93.3 overs. They were 264/8 overnight.

Today, Pujara walked out to bat at his usual No. 3 position. He was at the crease early, in the 2nd over of the innings but lasted just 6 balls.
