Australia's cricketers learn the D/L (Dalai Lama) method

Updated: 

Australian cricketers including Steve Smith and David Warner have taken advice from the Dalai Lama ahead of their crucial fourth Test against India in Dharamsala.

The four-match series is all square after the third Test ended in a draw, with the decider set to get under way on Saturday.

In an hour-long discussion at the Main Tibetan Temple in Dharamsala, His Holiness covered topics ranging from his enjoyment of feeding birds to his friendship with former US president George W Bush.

While he conceded to knowing "less than zero" about cricket, the Dalai Lama did offer Warner some guidance on the importance of peace of mind, while giving captain Smith some pointers on getting more sleep.

If you've got a spare hour, the meeting was broadcast on Facebook and is available to watch here...
