India coach Ravi Shastri lavished praise on Rahane for the way he marshaled limited resources.


"I think he is very simple, very calm and composed. When he is out there, he is not ruffled by anything. He even led from the front. His innings in Melbourne was the one that really set us back on track. To challenge Australia, get a lead and then force a win. We haven't looked back since and that is tremendous," Shastri added.

Rahane said that they did not discuss anything after the disastrous defeat in the first Test and started afresh.

"We didn't discuss anything about Adelaide Test and what happened there. It was all about focusing on the Melbourne Test from there on. I've said that many times. We showed character on the field and were not thinking of results. We were giving confidence to each and every individual. Attitude was fantastic on the field. We had great determination," he said.
