"I need to be a piece of the (Test) group, however it isn't in my grasp. I need to sit tight for the chance, at whatever point it comes, I must be prepared for it. To be prepared, I am doing everything, preparing, doing however much as could be expected to give myself the most obvious opportunity when the open door comes there," he included.
