New Delhi, Dec 03: Gujarat’s player Parthiv Patel was called back in national team, for the remaining two ODIs against New Zealand. Patel will make a comeback in International ODI arena, after almost six and a half years of long period. Patel is not up to think about the past years, which have been spent without national team. Having played only one International game against Sri Lanka in August 2008, the baby look face and Gujarat’s wicket-keeper feels that, the time to him is to move ahead and make very best use of the opportunities coming on his way.

“I have been called back to national side, so I’m really happy and excited. I don’t want to waste my time by thinking that why I didn’t get a chance for so long period. When I was out of my national side, I knew it, that my job is only to score as more runs as possible in domestic cricket and that’s what exactly I have done. I’m really honoured and grateful that I have rewarded a chance for my performance,” Parthiv said over phone from Valsad where Gujarat are playing their fifth round Ranji Trophy encounter against Mumbai. Did he get frustrated and angry at any point of time? “I have never looked up the things in that way. I was always focused positive and I did that consistently.”

Is it pressure on him as he is only chosen for the two ODIs to prove himself? “I don’t think so that I should be very much pressurised as I’m getting only a couple of games in my hand. My only job is to do well in terms of batting as well as wicket-keeping.” India had won the first two ODIs against New Zealand in the ongoing series.

Hello everyone this is Ronak Parekh and I’m currently student of S.Y.B.M.M. I’m 20 years old from Mumbai. I choose my career in B.M.M because I always wanted to do something which is of my interest. And my passion has always been sports especially cricket and F1. I really want to be linked with sports in my future. B.M.M course gives the opportunity in journalism from where I can move to sports category. When I was child I always used to play and watch cricket a lot which usually most of the people does. I gained my interest in F1 due to only one man and that was none other than seven time world champion Michael Schumacher. Actually I’m also very passionate about cars so it is really fun when I see this sport. Today I’m really excited about getting an opportunity to do internship for three months with the sports mirror, where I will have full freedom to express my views and opinions regarding every sport. I definitely will try my best to write the articles as good as possible which would be worth interesting for readers. I really whole heartedly thanking the sports mirror again for giving me this vital opportunity and I promise I will make the most of it.
