our strengths rather than think­ing about their com­bi­na­tion or their strate­gies,” he said.

Since their third and last Test in Sri Lanka from Au­gust 12-14, In­dia have been play­ing back to back lim­ited overs matches, which in­cluded se­ries against Aus­tralia and New Zealand at home.

“Ev­ery­one knows how to adapt and ad­just to all the for­mats. I don’t think we will have any prob­lem. All the play­ers are pro­fes­sion­als. I don’t think will have prob­lem in ad­just­ment. The first Test here is im­por­tant to get the mo­men­tum.”

Ra­hane was seen play­ing a lot of sweep shots on Mon­day in­clud­ing the un­ortho­dox re­verse sweep against the spin­ners.

“It’s im­por­tant to im­prove your game ev­ery­day and evolve when you are prac­tis­ing at the nets. I just want to im­prove. I think if I im­prove one shot in the nets, I will be bet­ter off in the game. If an op­por­tu­nity comes in the game, I’m 100 per cent con­fi­dent of play­ing a par­tic­u­lar shot. So, prac­tis­ing sweep, re­verse sweep and pad­dle sweep just as options.
