West Indies wicketkeeper-batsman Denesh Ramdin is determined to make the most of his recall, and says he is ready to show what he can do in the ODI series against Zimbabwe, starting on Friday.
Ramdin was dropped for the series against Australia and Bangladesh in favour of Devon Thomas, but the latter did not impress at all, neither with gloves nor the bat, so the experienced Ramdin has been called up to face the Zimbabweans.
He feels he is ready for the task, and while he knows he's not going to score all the big runs ala Kieron Pollard or Dwayne Bravo, he still will aim to contribute down the order with some quick runs.
The wicketkeeper said: "My form is 'there' and I am feeling confident with the bat and I have been working twice as hard to make sure I get runs when I'm out in the middle.
"Behind the stumps I worked overtime to make sure that I was fit and ready when the selectors called on me."
He continued: "While I was out I did a lot of work on all areas of my game. I think my role with the bat is mainly to hit the ball in the gaps, run really hard between the wickets and accumulate good scores for the team.
"There are other guys in the team, like Kieron Pollard and Andre Russell, who have the power to clear the boundaries and other guys who can come and hit the ball down at the bottom.
"So basically, I see myself as someone to keep things ticking and look to bat through the end once I get that chance."
