Hooda, for whom this is his maiden India T20I call-up, has expressed his happiness. <p></p> <p></p>Speaking to <i>IndianExpress</i>, Hooda said: Getting a chance to represent the country is nothing less than a dream come true for me and my family. Wearing the Indian jersey is something I have been waiting for. I believe, it was my performance for India A which has been awarded now <p></p> <p></p>Hooda s recent form for Baroda in Ranji Trophy 2017-18 has been splendid, having scored back-to-back three half-centuries. <p></p> <p></p><b>On his batting position with India</b> <p></p> <p></p> Right now, I don t have any expectations for batting at a certain position. Instead of contributing to team s success will be my priority. <p></p> <p></p><b>On his IPL experience</b> <p></p> <p></p> IPL s experience will come handy and whatever I can learn from seniors here will be a bonus for me. To succeed at this level, I am looking to get vital inputs from seniors and coaches.
