Mumbai: Team India discard Irfan Pathan on Saturday said he is hopeful of a comeback in the national team before the tour of Australia later this year.
"I am hopeful of playing for the country, wherever it be. If that happens in Australia, well and good. If the selectors give me opportunity there (Australia) or before, I will be on top of the world... That is the dream that I am chasing now," Pathan said in Mumbai at a promotional event.
The left-arm seamer has been out of international scene for more than two years following a spate of injuries and bad form. He last represented the country in an International T20 match against West Indies at Lord's in June 2009.
