The right-hand batsman said that they have the T20Is and practice games before the first Test match. So he is not thinking about the Test match.
He made it clear that all he is thinking of is going back, taking a few days off, and take the flight to Australia. He feels that the Indian team will have enough time to think about the Test match after that. He explained that if he tries and stays in present, it works for him.
The Indian batsman admitted that Australia will be a different ball-game, and he completely understands that. But he also thinks that the things they have been doing as a team, they have to keep repeating the same thing they have been doing.
The Indian cricketer also said that as a batsman, he doesn’t think about his past performances. He believes that every game is a new game and every time he goes out there in the middle, he keeps things simple.
