Back your game: Tendulkar's advice to Ajinkya Rahane

Back your game: Tendulkar's advice to Ajinkya Rahane”

Despite bagging the player of the series award with 336 runs at an average of 67.20 in the ODI series against West Indies in July, Rahane sat out as Rohit Sharma renewed his opening partnership upon return in Sri Lanka.

Speaking ahead of India's training session on Saturday Rahane said: "I don't think about the future".

"I do my best when I get my opportunity". I stay in the present as much as possible.

"When Shikhar [Dhawan] comes we don't know what is going to happen".

However, India opener Ajinkya Rahane, on the eve of third ODI, claimed that a win at Eden Gardens gave confidence to Team India, but they are not taking the opposition for granted. "So at the moment, it's important for me to give my best for the team". Every time you can not think of a 100, crucial 45-50 runs is equally important.

India cricketer Ajinkya Rahane hasn't been Virat Kohli's first choice in the limited-overs game, but he got the chance to play for India against Australia in place of Shikhar Dhawan.

He was asked about the challenges an opener faces when he is asked to bat in the middle-order. The 29-year-old, now opening the batting, has also batted in the middle order.

He added: "It's completely mental (adjustment)".

On the flexibility of the batting order, Rahane said, "The good thing about this team is anyone can bat anywhere".

"For four days, I did nets at the Bandra Kurla Complex". It's important to handle that situation and utilize that situation.

India spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal have been the centre of attention in this series after their exploits in the first two matches.

When asked on the form of Manish Pandey and Kedar Jadhav, Rahane said, "Manish and Kedar are important to this side". "It's a good sign that they [Australians] are not able to pick them".

While Dhoni joined the spinners and bowled a few leg-breaks before padding up to take them on, Rohit, the ODI vice-captain, had a long stint in the adjacent net, facing a barrage of pace bowling.

"I just tried to make sure I didn't repeat the mistakes I made in the first match, and after the first couple overs, the aim was to put pressure on Australia, on how to counter attack". However, he concluded by saying, "We are not taking things for granted".

"Sachin Tendulkar asked me to back my game when I met him at the BKC (in Mumbai)". When a couple of batsmen get set and score big, you tend to get enough totals. What's in your hands is your preparation. You need to work on the mindset - because the better the mindset, the better you do on the field'. "He did not say anything about my technique but spoke only on the mental aspect", Rahane said at the press conference.

"He has played a lot against Australia and he mentioned what line and length they bowl". How to prepare for that. "I got a lot of confidence from his talk".
