Naman Ojha sets eyes on India's Test wicketkeeping spot

New Delhi: Experienced Madhya Pradesh cricketer Naman Ojha has set his eyes on India's Test wicketkeeping spot as the stumper said he is looking forward to knock at selectors doors with impressive performances in the near future.

"It was good to play in Sri Lanka in the last Test and be a part of the series-winning team. I had done well and am hoping next year that I will be there when there will be 13-14 Tests. That's why I am looking forward to this performance, looking forward to score runs and coming back in the eye (of the selectors)," Ojha told PTI.

Interestingly, in the upcoming Ranji Trophy quarter finals, starting from Wednesday, Ojha and No. 1 Indian wicketkeeper in Tests Wriddhiman Saha of Bengal will be keeping wickets, 

However Ojha disclosed that the duo are good friends and even heaped praise on Saha's wicketkeeping skills.

"He's playing Tests and is a good, agile keeper. I am learning from him by watching on TV. We are good friends and did have a chat (ahead of the game). I just focus on my job and the rest will fall (into place)," added Ojha.

To improve his skills behind the stumps the MP wicket-keeper batsman is also interacting constantly with former India stumper Kiran More.

"I am doing some work with Kiran More sir, learning from him, specifically about keeping up to the spinners. Keeping to spinners in Indian conditions is challenging. We talk regularly. He's the best to get advise from. Sometimes, you don't know what mistakes you commit. Sitting outside he can see that," said Ojha.
