Kolkata, Nov 14 (CNMSPORTS) India vice captain and premier batsman Ajinkya Rahane is not losing sleep over his recent failures to convert starts into big scores.

The 29-year old, set to take the field against Sri Lanka in the first of the three Tests starting here at the Eden Gardens on Thursday, has scores of 5, 55, 70, 53, 61 in his last five international One-Day International (ODI) matches against Australia.

In the domestic circuit, the Mumbai batsman registered two ducks in the second and first innings against Odisha and Baroda respectively but also notched up 49 and 45 in the other two innings of the same matches.

Rahane did not play a single match against New Zealand.

In his last Test against the Sri Lankans in the latter's own lair, Rahane scored 17 in the first innings. 

"I am not too concerned about that. I am batting really well. I got four fifties in a row in the one-day series," Rahane told reporters here.
