After a succesful debut in Sri Lanka, Ravinder Jadeja is eager to carry the good form into the Twenty20 matches against New Zealand and impress the selectors before they pick the Indian team for the T20 World Cup this year.

The Saurashtra all-rounder wants to cement his place in the T20 team so that he can figure in India's defence of the World Cup, to be held in England in June.

"I want to fully utilise this chance. Definitely I want to be a part of Twenty20 World Cup team and this is the chance to prove my mettle. I am confident to perform as per team's need," Jadeja told PTI over phone from Rajkot.

Jadeja was included in the T20 squad for the New Zealand tour after his stupendous show on the domestic circuit.

The Suarashtra player, who bowls spin, knows that conditions may not be favourable in New Zealand but exuded confidence of doing well.

"I know it is tough to beat them in their backyard where they have tailor made pitches. I will see the wicket and adjust my bowling accordingly. The emphasise will be on variation."
