New Delhi: The Sri Lankan team is in India for a three-match Test series, India vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane spoke exclusively to News 18 Hindi. In a hearty chat, Rahane talked about the current Lankan team, and how they would not make the mistake of taking their opponents lightly.

Also Rahane made it clear during the interview that they are not thinking about the South Africa series as yet, as to be the no.1 team in the world, they'll have to focus on one team at a time. Although Rahane, on being compared to Rahul Dravid, used to shun it, but now has said that he likes it whenever he is compared to the great cricketer.

According to him, that only serves as a good motivation to him. "He is my role model off the field too, and I would like take up challenges of ODI and T20 cricket, like the way he did."
