Pomersbach eager to play for RCB

Bangalore, Apr 5: Australia's Luke Pomersbach has said that he will grab the opportunity with both hands, if he gets to play for RCB in the fifth season after being rested for most of the matches in the last few seasons.

"It is going to be tough (to get a chance with Chris Gayle, Tillakratne Dilshan, Daniel Vettori and Muttaiah Muralitharan competing to get into the playing team). I have to wait until the day before the game. If (coach Ray) Jennings asks me to pad up, I will grab it with both hands," he told reporters on Wednesday during net practice at Chinnaswamy Stadium.

When asked if he chose IPL to make a comeback to the national team, talking to the reporters in Bangalore Pomersbach said, he turned up for the Indian Premier League as he had two more years of contract left and was fit and raring to go.

He further added that playing with such experienced players helps a cricketer like him as it is indeed a learning experience as he has not played many international matches.

"With such players around it is a great learning curve for someone like me who hasn't had too many international games under my belt," he said.

Pomersbach, is keen on playing the fifth edition, as he awaits his turn, his preparations are going on in full swing as he is trying to acclimatize to Indian conditions.

"It is nice to face lot of bowlers, especially on this track, which is little different from Australian pitches," he said.

Pomersbach was also questioned on his cricketing career, as he was given an indefinite ban by WACA in August 2009. Though it was lifted but things haven'tchanged since his return to first class cricket from Jan 2010, he says, he wants to be positive.

"I just want to be positive about my game and enjoy it and stop thinking about other things," he said.

Pomersbach also feels that out-of-form Shaun Marsh, who plays for Kings XI Punjab would come back to India after the tour agianst West Indies and would score runs to end up among the top 3 run scorers.

"Shaun is a fantastic player. He will come out of it. He works harder than anyone I know off the field," he said.
