Saurabh Tiwari eyes national comeback

Ghazipur: He burst onto the scene after his exploits in the last IPL, and Jharkhand`s Ranji team skipper Saurabh Tiwari is now eyeing a comeback into the Indian cricket team. Despite the series of defeats in the recent past, the left-handed batsman Saurabh believed that Mahendra Singh Dhoni`s team was still the best in the world. Tiwari said that questions cannot be raised over the ability of a team on the basis of a couple of series.

Tiwari, who made an important contribution during India`s successful campaign in the Under-19 World Cup in 2008, said India are world champions and cannot be termed a weak team. The batsman, who will be playing for Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL, said that it was a good chance to get his touch back.

Terming Sachin Tendulkar as the greatest batsman, Tiwari said the veteran was suitable candidate for the Bharat Ratna.
