Mumbai: They lost the No. 1 rank to England last year but India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni assured that the "process is on" to reclaim the spot in longer version.

Asked about reclaiming the No. 1 spot, Dhoni said, "That plan is always on. Whatever format you play in the sport, you always want to be No 1. It's a slow constant process that we are subjected to," Dhoni said here on Wednesday.

Questioned on the upcoming England series, he said that it will be an interesting one. "It will be an interesting one. If you see the England side, they are a very good side but it is important to focus on our strength and weaknesses. We also need to improve over a period of time," the Indian skipper stated.

Process to reclaim No. 1 Test spot is on: Dhoni

The Indian skipper has assured that the "process is on" to reclaim the spot in longer version.

Dhoni said that the short camp in Mumbai before the series will help them get into groove. "We are reporting in a couple of days. We have a few practice matches before we get into the team," Dhoni said.

On a different note, Dhoni revealed that being a professional cricketer was never on his agenda and would have rather been happy serving the country as an armyman.

"Coming from a small town, I never thought that cricket will be my profession. I wanted to join Indian Army. It was my dream. But then cricket happened. Everything fell into place, I started performing well in first class cricket - Duleep Trophy and all the other tournaments."
