"If you see the temperament that Rahane showed despite not getting runs in last few appearances in Bangladesh and Sri Lanka...I think when you get into a situation and you show believe in yourself and show the patience, then it can happen," Gavaskar said.

"My honest advice to everybody is don't get too fussed about the fact that you are not making runs on pitches where the ball has done something. I think you need to show patience like Rahane showed. You stay at the wicket, runs will come”, he added.

Heaping praise on Rahane, Gavaskar said: "Rahane was out of form and short of confidence and therefore he was looking to play every delivery earlier on. Today, he played himself in during his partnership with Virat Kohli. Talking about Kohli's bizarre way of getting out, Gavaskar went down memory lane and said he himself had got out in a similar manner during 1974 Test against West Indies.
