I'll prove myself if I get chance against Australia: Suresh Raina
“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.
“It's very important for me to just look to score 100. Not just 100 but 150 or 160, then I can be more mentally tough for Test matches. I have done that in the past and have scored two or three double hundreds in first class cricket.
“When you score a lot of big hundreds, it definitely helps your batting,” Raina, who has just one hundred from his debut
