Rookie pace bowler S Sreesanth says he is not in a hurry to make it to the Test team despite his impressive display in ODIs on the recently concluded tour of Pakistan.
"I have not thought about it (making it to the Test team). I would like to take it match by match. I intend to concentrate on giving my best in every game that I am chosen for," Sreesanth said in an exclusive chat on Tuesday.
"It's a great opportunity that I have got to play for India. I know if I play well I will get my chances. I am not in a hurry," the Kerala youngster said.
Sreesanth was in the city in connection with a three-year deal he has signed up with sports and event management firm Percept D'Mark, who have already in their stable Yuvraj Singh and Sourav Ganguly.
Sreesanth, who was used as first change bowler by the captain Rahul Dravid in the final one-day match at Karachi, after sharing the new ball in the first four matches with Irfan Pathan, said he did not mind whether he bowled with the new ball or with a slightly older ball.
"It all depends on the situation and what the team wants. I will be able to do my part well. I will try to do whichever role is given to me. It's a great opportunity that I have got. It doesn't matter whether I bowl with new or slightly old ball," the Kochi-based player said.
