Ex-Oz batsman Ferguson eyeing India ODIs

London: Young batsman Callum Ferguson, who has been out of the Australian squad for almost a year with injury, is eyeing upon the Australia`s tour of India in October to resume his fledgling international career.

"Ferguson has been testing his mended knee with South Australia in Darwin, caressing a century against the Indian provincial side Maharashtra before playing in an experimental split innings fixture against Tasmania," The Age reports.

Twenty-five-year-old Ferguson, who is to participate in the Top End Emerging Players` tournament, is keen to get back into the Australian squad.

"I`m extremely keen to get back into the Australian side as quickly as possible. That`s really going to be something for the selectors to decide as soon as I get the all-clear from the physios about being ready to play the full game," The AAP quoted Ferguson as saying.

"And that`s bloody exciting, if I manage to get myself ready to go in that team for that tournament that`d be a huge highlight and something I`d be extremely proud of. The World Cup is not too far away now, that`s rushed onto us a little bit," he added.

Ferguson twisted his knee in the field during Australia`s Champions Trophy win over New Zealand an year ago.
