Indore: Impressive performance in the third Indian Premier League has earned Naman Ojha a berth in the Zimbabwe-bound national team and the stumper-batsman said he is rearing to go all out if given a chance.

"I am in good touch since IPL III and if given a chance in Zimbabwe, I will leave no stone unturned to perform well. I am happy to get a berth in the India team and now waiting to prove my mettle in the one-day international circuit," Ojha told reporters from Mumbai over phone.

Ojha, who played for Rajasthan Royals in the IPL, made 377 runs in 14 matches with an average of 31.41.

"I would not let the selectors down. They have given me an opportunity. I believe that you will keep getting chances automatically if you show consistency," the 26-year-old said.

The Madhya Pradesh cricketer also admitted that the IPL has done a world of good to him.

"I have learnt a lot while playing in the IPL III, during which I got in touch with the senior cricketers, who have guided me well. Playing in the IPL was a memorable experience," he said.

Ojha was yesterday included into the 15-member India squad which will play a tri-series -- also involving Sri Lanka -- in Zimbabwe commencing from May 28.

Ojha is also part of the India squad, led by Suresh Raina, which will play two Twenty20 internationals against Zimbabwe on June 12 and 13.
