India vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane feels that the batsmen will have to show a lot of patience if they are to find success in the upcoming four-Test series against the West Indies. The first Test begins in Antigua on July 21.

“We have discussed about all these factors as a batting unit,” said Rahane on Monday.
