Canberra: India's veteran batsman Rahul Dravid feels that consistency will be the key for the team in the upcoming four-match Test series against Australia, that begins December 26 in Melbourne.
"We have to prepare well and start the series well. We will play one Test match at a time and the key will be consistency from a lot of players. It's not going to be individual performances that will win us this series. This series will be won by consistent performances from a lot of players in the team," Dravid said on the ICC Cricket World Radio Show.
Dravid said it has to be a collective effort to win the series.
"Three or four bowlers need to step up as do three or four batsmen and those seven or eight players with consistent performances will help India win this series against Australia."
On his personal form, Dravid, said: "It's nice to be in good form but that does not mean you will score runs, I still have to do my preparation, I'll still have to work hard and earn every single run, especially in Australia. Being in good form, gives me confidence but that's about it," Dravid said.
