New Delhi: After doing well in the recently concluded limited overs series in Sri Lanka, Irfan Pathan can't wait to get back into Test team which still remains his top priority.

"I have my own set of dreams and playing Test cricket is certainly on top of that list. I want to perform well in the limited overs version so that when Test cricket comes calling, I am up and ready for it," said Pathan, who is a part of India's ODI and T20 sqauds.

The all-rounder, who was in wilderness for two years feels that he can now "enjoy each and every small moment of success" that comes his way.

"After being out for two years due to injury, this is one thing I have learnt. I need to enjoy each and every small bit of success that comes my way. I have to seize happiness from each and every moment on cricket field,"

"I have realized that whatever has happened in the past is history and I can't afford to look too ahead towards future. But I can control my present and work hard to make things happen. That is exactly what I am trying to do. Grab each and every moment," the 27-year-old, who won two man-of-the-match awards said.

"A good delivery like the one that swung into Dilshan and I got him bowled in the T20 match is certainly satisfying but at the same time my innings of 34 not out is also equally significant as it was very important in the context of the match. These are little successes that I have started enjoying. It lifts your morale."
