Lucknow:Team India discarded all-rounder Joginder Sharma has expressed hopes of returning to the national side.

Joginder, who played three ODIs against Bangladesh and one against West Indies, said now-a-days he was performing well by taking wickets regularly besides scoring runs in the domestic circuit.

He also lamented the fact that despite his consistent performance in domestic cricket, still he was not considered for the selection in the team.

He is here to participate in the Sheesh Mahal Cricket tournament and representing hosts Sahara India team.

In reply to a question, the all-rounder from Haryana who is here to participate in the Sheesh Mahal Cricket tournament for Sahara India team, disclosed that he never had the opportunity to get tips from former India skipper and 1983 world cup winning team leader Kapil Dev, though both of them hail from the same state and expressed his desire to get tips from the 'Haryana Hurricane'.

He also said that as a role model he visualises Zaheer Khan and Aashish Nehra.

Commenting on great Austrailan fast bowler Glenn McGrath, who retired from international cricket after the World Cup final, Joginder said he was impressed with the the 37-year-old bowler's consistent line and length bowling.

''McGrath was capable of lifting his deliveries from one spot to the either sides of the wickets and was consistent in his speed, line and length.''
