Mumbai: Having scored a solid 134 for Rest of India against Mumbai, Suresh Raina insisted that he would make it count if he is recalled to the Indian squad against Australia in the upcoming four-Test series, commencing in Chennai later this month.
     
"I'm hitting the ball really well. The last four fifties and a hundred have made me tougher. I was disappointed that I didn't get any hundreds in the ODIs (against England), so I had more desire to make a hundred in this game," said Raina.
     
"Fortunately it was done today and God has been really kind. Hopefully, when I get the chance against Australia, I will prove myself again," said the left handed batsman, who top-scored in RoI's imposing total of 526 in the Irani Cup game against the Ranji Trophy winners Mumbai.
     
Raina lost his place in the Test team after a not-too-impressive show in the short two-Test series against New Zealand in September and was not considered for the four-game rubber subsequently against England.
     
The 26-year-old UP batsman, who has figured in 17 Tests so far, wants to make score big tons.
