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."
