Dharamsala: He has relished the role of a finisher in one-dayers but given a chance, Suresh Raina won't mind batting higher up the order as he believes it would give him a chance to plan his innings better and make a comeback in the Indian Test fold.

"Definitely, I would like to bat higher up the order, If I am given a chance, I would like to give my 100 per cent as it will also give me an opportunity to play more overs. I have enjoyed batting at No 5,6 or 7 where you need to bat till the finish," Raina told mediapersons here on the eve of the fifth and final ODI against England to be played on Sunday.

India have already pocketed the series by taking a 3-1 lead.
