I have enjoyed batting at No 5,6 or 7 where you need to bat till the finish," Raina told media persons on the eve of <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/cricket-articles/India-vs-England-2012-13-5th-ODI-preview-Pride-and-morale-at-stake-at-chilly-Dharamsala/22397" target="_blank">the fifth and final ODI against England </a>to be played on Sunday.<br /> <br /> India have already pocketed the series by taking a 3-1 lead.<br /> <br /> For someone, who has been an indispensable part in India's ODI scheme of things, Raina has a Test average of less than 30. But the left-hander is still hopeful of making a comeback in the Test fold.<br /> <br /> "If you talk about my Test performance, I scored a 50 in one of my last three innings. I believe that I can make a comeback in Tests," the 26-year-old stated.<br /> <br /> That he is eyeing a Test slot in the <a href="/tags/Australia/post" target="_blank">Australia </a>series became evident when he stressed on the importance of doing well in the Irani Cup to be held from February 6-10.<br /> <br /> "Yes, Irani Trophy will be very important but at this point, I want to focus on doing well in tomorrow's match. Although, we have won the series, it would be nice if we can finish with a 4-1 margin."
