Meanwhile, coach Rahul Dravid has said that the side would continue to back Rahul.
“I think he needs to trust his processes. This is just a phase, he has been one of our most successful overseas openers. He’s got hundreds in South Africa and England, we’ll continue to back him. I believe he has the quality and class to come out of this,” said Dravid after the game.
