The batter has been working hard at the nets because he appears determined to score big against the Tigers and lead his team to victory. During one such practise, Rahul Dravid, the rest of the coaching staff, and Virat Kohli were all seen paying close attention to a teammate's batting technique.
Rahul's opening strategy dissatisfied Kohli, who suggested that Rahul adjust his stance in order to play the pull strokes with greater height. Before starting his nets practise, Rahul appeared to eagerly accept the advise.
