India's stand-in captain Ajinkya Rahane on Friday said he would rather focus on his team than worrying about Australia's “mind games” ahead of the 'Boxing Day' Test starting here on Saturday. “Australians are very good at playing mind games and I will let them do that. We are focussing on ourselves, what we want to do as a unit and we are going to back our every individuals,” Rahane said on the eve of the match. “It is a proud moment for me leading India, obviously it is a great opportunity, responsibility as well but I don't want to take any pressure,” said the dependable middle-order batsman. “I think what I want to do is back my team. So focus is not on me, it is all about team and how we want to do well as a team. We are focussing on that.”Even skipper Kohli, before leaving for India for the birth of his child, urged Rahane to be himself and play fearless cricket. Watch the full video for more details.
