'Special to play in Hyderabad'

Playing his second match at his home venue, Pragyan Ojha was soaking in all the attention he was receiving in his backyard and with a good reason too.

The left-arm spinner had a forgettable outing the last time around, conceding 217 runs for his three wickets in the match. This time, however, he already has four wickets and is threatening to grab more.

“When you are playing in Hyderabad -- growing up and playing lots of games here – it becomes a bit easier.

“To be frank if I had got a five-wicket haul here, it would have been special but nevertheless I have got second innings and I am really looking forward to it,” said Ojha after the match.
The Orissa-born cricketer felt the wicket at Hyderabad will take more turn from the fourth day.

“There was some bounce on the wicket. Now, in the second innings, it has started turning more. In the first, it was turning from edges of the pitch but now it’s turning from the middle-stump line itself which is good for us. We are confident that everything will fall in place for us,” the Hyderabad spinner explained.
