Naman Ojha's performance in the last 12 months has earned him a place in the Indian squad for the Australian tour as a back-up keeper.


New Delhi: Naman Ojha's name has been in contention for a while owing to his stupendous form with the bat in the past 12 months and the Madhya Pradesh wicketkeeper-batsman is therefore "not surprised" at his inclusion in the 19-member Test squad for the Australia tour.

"I am happy that I am a part of the Test squad but I must say that I was hopeful after my performances for India A in Australia and Madhya Pradesh in the Ranji Trophy. I have played first-class cricket for a while but this is the best phase of my career as far as batting is concerned," the 31-year Naman told PTI from Nagpur, where he is playing for his state in the Vijay Hazare Trophy.

Ojha will be vying for a Test spot alongside Wriddhiman Saha as regular skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni will not play in the first Test. But he is not at all perturbed about the fact that Saha is way ahead in contention for a Test berth.
