OhjaKolkata: Left-arm spinner Pragyan Ohja was not at all disappointed when he had been benched through out the Test series against Sri Lanka. Ohja is now confident of getting a dream debut against Australia which is scheduled to start on September.

Ojha said the Australian batsmen, despite their known vulnerability against spin, will be a challenge for him if he is selected for the four-Test series starting October 9.

"It's a dream for anybody to play Tests and a debut against Australia will be just perfect. I have no experience against Australians but I know their weakness against spin bowling, I'll hope to do well if given a chance. It will be surely a big moment for me," said Ojha

Picked for the Rest of India squad against Delhi in the Irani Trophy, the only proper practice game ahead of the tough four-match Test series against the world champions, Ojha said he would try and impress the selectors in the practice game.

"There's still some way to go for the Australia series. At the moment, my focus is to do well in the Irani Trophy and ensure my place in the squad for the Test series. I don't want to hurry things up but to go step by step," Ojha said, referring to the September 24-28 Irani Trophy tie vs Delhi to be held in Vadodara.
