Bangalore: Branded as a One-day international and Twenty20 specialist, Suresh Raina said he was keen to shrug off the tag and cement his berth in the Indian Test team, and felt that his effort of 55 on the second day against New Zealand in the second cricket Test here Saturday was a step in that direction.
"I have been playing Test cricket and getting better and better. I have been there, batting well at No.6 and No.7, but I was aiming for a long innings which didn't come. When I get a chance again I would look to score a big one," said Raina at the end of the day's play here Saturday.
Referring to his dismissal, caught behind for the second consecutive innings, Raina said he was disappointed that it happened when he and Virat Kohli were going strong, having added 99 runs.
