I'll prove myself if I get chance against Australia: Raina

Raina said he combined well with Abhimanyu Mithun, with whom he put on a 153-run stand for the seventh wicket to push the RoI total beyond the 500 mark. "I had a good partnership with Mithun. Earlier as well, he has batted well. In my debut Test match he scored 50 or 60. He was batting well and we were communicating well," he said.

Mumbai: Having scored a solid 134 for Rest of India against Mumbai on Thursday, Suresh Raina insisted that he would make it count if he is recalled to the Indian squad against Australia in the upcoming four-Test series, commencing in Chennai later this month.

"I'm hitting the ball really well. The last four fifties and a hundred have made me tougher. I was disappointed that I didn't get any hundreds in the ODIs (against England), so I had more desire to make a hundred in this game," said Raina.

"Fortunately it was done today and God has been really kind. Hopefully, when I get the chance against Australia, I will prove myself again," said the left handed batsman, who top-scored in RoI's imposing total of 526 in the Irani Cup game against the Ranji Trophy winners Mumbai.
