PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC):

Jason Mohammed has his eyes set on a Test debut as he seeks to build on his recent success in the limited overs format for West Indies.

The 30-year-old has enjoyed a decent run this year with four half-centuries in six One-Day Internationals and believes he can make a successful transition to the longest format.

"Obviously I would like to play Tests, but it is up to the selectors. I think with my good form I should have a chance in Test cricket," the right-hander told the News Day newspaper here.

"If there are others in line obviously I will have to wait my turn, but I am definitely excited if I am called up to the Test team, and I would be looking forward to the opportunity."


Little success


Mohammed made his international debut in 2011 with little success and had to wait another four years before he could play his second game, again failing to have any impact.

However, he returned to the squad for the England series last month with two half-centuries and struck another two against Pakistan in the just concluded three-match series.

His career-best unbeaten 91 was the catalyst behind West Indies' record run chase to win the first ODI in Guyana last Friday.
