Ahmedabad: Out-of-favour Indian pacer Irfan Pathan is confident of making a "comeback" to the national fold and said that he would focus on the Ranji Trophy matches to make his presence felt.

"Irfan will return very soon. For that my focus is on the forthcoming Ranji matches. I will play all the Ranji Trophy matches and if you play four-day cricket, it would be easier to play one-day cricket," the all-rounder told reporters here on Thursday.

"Before or after the World Cup, I am sure that I will soon be playing for Team India," Pathan, who played his last one-day match against Sri Lanka two years ago said. The Gujarat-based cricketer, who represents Baroda in Ranji Trophy matches, expressed the he eyes a good performance in all cricket matches to enable his comeback.
