Speaking over telephone from Bangalore, the temperamental pacer said, 'I am sure I will be able to perform well by giving my full effort.
'I have not played against Australia in Test matches. This is an opportunity to play for my country. Australia is a top Test side and I am hoping to put in a good performance.'
Thanking the selectors for reposing faith in him, Sreesanth said he is training hard and in good rhythm, having played for Kerala [ Images ] state in the recent Moin-ud-Dowla tournament in Hyderabad.
To a query whether he was expecting a recall, he replied: 'Not really, but I was training hard and had been bowling a lot.
'It is very good.'
