Former India captain Rahul Dravid has backed the out-of-form Ajinkya Rahane, saying the Mumbai youngster will bounce back from the poor ODI series against England.

"He had a few good knocks... ups and downs are always there. It is tough and adds pressure. He has the talent and will bounce back," said Dravid when asked about the young batsman.

After a promising start in the opening one-dayer against England, Rahane has been dismissed cheaply in two consecutive games, which increased the pressure on him to perform.

Dravid, skipper of Indian Premier League (IPL) side Rajasthan Royals, is currently undergoing a camp along with his team mates at the Sawai Man Singh Stadium, ahead of the sixth edition of the tournament.
