Hyderabad:Right on the cusp of realising his Test cricket dreams, promising batsman S Badrinath says he is ready to bat anywhere in the batting order and would also show his fielding skills against Australia.
"Any position, any number," Badrinath said, when asked what would be his preferred position if he gets picked in the playing XI.
"It has been a dream for me and if I make my Test debut against Australia, world's number one team, it just could not get better," a beaming Badrinath said after the net session here on the eve of Board President XI's warm-up match against Australia here.
Badrinath said the practice match would help him get a fair idea about the Australian side.
"The match now becomes even more important for me, because it allows me play against the same Australian players whom I might face again in the Test series," he said.
Assessing the Aussies, Badrinath said it would be a challenge to face the Australian attack.
"They have a great pace bowling attack but I think thei spin department is little weak and inexperience," he observed.
Runs have flowed from Badrinath's blade in domestic cricket and the 28-year-old three-ODI veteran is also one of the most athletic fielders around.
"I enjoy fielding and I hope to contribute to the team's cause with both my batting and fielding," said the Tamil Nadu batsman.
