New Delhi: While there are quite a few in the race to grab the number six spot in India's Test squad, Tamil Nadu's middle-order mainstay Subramaniam Badrinath on Wednesday claimed that he was the best bet for that position.
"I have been waiting in the sidelines. Honestly, there is just one spot left (in the middle-order). To be honest, I do not want to be that one guy who is only in the squad and not playing. I want to play in the eleven and that is my biggest motivation," Badrinath told PTI.
"I have been in the national team for a while but didn't get a chance to play. In the back of my mind I know I haven't really lost. Maybe the spots would open up soon and I feel I am the best guy to do the job," insisted the 31-year-old, who has played two Tests and seven ODIs.
