NEW DELHI: Former captain Rahul Dravid advised Ajinkya Rahane not to bat a lot in the nets and put pressure on himself while leading the Indian team in Australia. "Rahul Bhai actually called me before the series, when we were leaving to Australia from Dubai. He said, 'Don't take any stress, I know you are leading the team after the first Test. Don't worry about anything, just be strong mentally. Don't bat a lot in the nets', (which is) unlike Rahul Bhai," AjinkyaRahane told commentator HarshaBhogle in an interaction.

"Rahul Bhai loves batting, and he was like 'that's the mistake I did'. He said, 'don't bat a lot in the nets, your preparation is really good, you're batting so well. So, don't take any pressure. Just think about how you are going to lead the team, how you are going to give confidence to the players. Don't worry about the result, it will take care of itself'. That conversation really made it easy — Rahul Bhai telling me to not bat a lot in the nets. It was really good," he said.

Rahane was captain of the Indian team for the second, third, and fourth Tests of the Australia tour. IANS
