September 16, 2008

Picked for the Rest of India squad against Delhi in the Irani Trophy, the only proper practice game ahead of the tough four-match Test series against the world champions, Ojha said he would try and impress the selectors in the practice game.

"There's still some way to go for the Australia series. At the moment, my focus is to do well in the Irani Trophy and ensure my place in the squad for the Test series. I don't want to hurry things up but to go step by step," Ojha said, referring to the September 24-28 Irani Trophy tie vs Delhi to be held in Vadodara.

  • Asked whether he was frustrated at having to warm the bench during the India-Sri Lanka Test series, Ojha said, "It's not at all disappointing having remained in the dressing room after not being picked for the playing XI."

    "The dressing room atmosphere itself is very inspiring. I know my chance will come, I've to wait for the chance and make use of the opportunity when it comes."
