Under bit of pressure as chance has come after long time: Ojha
The freak injury to Wriddhiman Saha opening the door for him after a “long wait”, Indian wicketkeeper-batsman Naman Ojha on Wednesday said he would be “under pressure” to perform if he makes the playing XI in the decisive third cricket Test against Sri Lanka starting Friday.
“There is a little bit of pressure <g data-gr-id="20">yes,</g> because I have got this chance after a very long time. But I am not thinking about it. I have waited very long and I am just looking to enjoy my game and enjoy this moment,” Ojha said in anticipation of his coveted Test debut.
“It was an absolutely amazing feeling to be called up for this Test. It felt really good. I am preparing well, and playing against Australia-A last month was good. So I am in a good shape and fingers crossed, I will perform well,” he added.
Ojha played one ODI (vs Sri Lanka) and T20 Two Internationals, way back in 2010, in a short <g data-gr-id="16">limited overs</g> tour of Zimbabwe. Since then he has been on the fringes, on tour as second or third wicketkeeper in recent times.
