In chilly winters, he would ensure he took around 80-100 practice catches daily. I have never seen him missing those catching sessions...that’s why he became so perfect.
The funniest moment that I remember about Rahul is when we won the Adelaide Test in 2003-04. We finished the game around lunch time but Rahul had his cricket gear on till well after dinner. He was so excited he didn't even bother to change his whites!
