    Default Ajinkya Rahane seeks consistency to secure India spot

    Cricketer Ajinkya Rahane has said he is working towards attaining greater consistency and is looking to convert starts into big

    scores to secure his place in the Indian squad.

    Opener Rahane scored a stroke-filled half century and was looking good for a hundred until his dismissal for 68 in the fourth

    one-day international (ODI) against the West Indies on Friday, paving the way for India's 59-run win.

    "I have often got starts but haven't been able to convert them into big ones. I realised that if I get a big score opening the

    innings, it will only help the team's cause. I would want to get a lot more consistent," Rahane said.

    "My focus is to keep up the momentum attained after scoring 30 or 40 by playing risk-free cricket through orthodox shots. Opening

    the batting is an important slot in the order as it sets up the platform for the team in their innings."

    The 26-year-old mentioned about enjoying stiff competition for the opening slot, identifying it as a 'challenge'. He is currently

    in contention for the spot with the likes of Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan and Murali Vijay.

    "It is good to have healthy competition when you are playing for the country. You need to accept it as a challenge especially at

    this stage when the competition is intense," the right handed batsman said, thanking skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni for backing him

    and providing necessary support to play his natural game.
