Warm-up game good opportunity to impress selectors: Hardik

Friday, February 17, 2017

Mumbai: Ready to wait for his turn to make his debut in Test cricket, India A skipper Hardik Pandya said the warm-up game against Australia today would be a great opportunity for fringe players to impress the selectors ahead of the four-Test series.

"It will be good opportunity for all of us, specially me to perform and get the opportunity to play in the Test series, it will be a good opportunity for the youngsters as well, who are there to show what they have," Hardik told reporters here.

"We are not treating it as a practice game, it's an opportunity for all of us to do something amazing and get recognised in the selectors eyes."

Hardik, who has been dubbed as a limited overs expert, has improved as a seamer and a good show against the visitors may force skipper Virat Kohli and coach Anil Kumble to keep him in their plans for the first two Test matches.

"I have played against Australia A. This will be an amazing experience. Australians, you all know how they are and how aggressive they are, it will be nice competition for all of us," he added.

The Gujarat allrounder has played 7 ODIs and 19 T20s but is yet to make his Test debut despite being picked in the squad against England and Bangladesh. Asked how it has helped him to be a part of the team, Hardik said, "I feel its a learning curve for me, I should be learning lots of things staying with the team and it always helps. I am improving my game day by day," he said.
