Shastri also said if Jadeja will be fit, he will play in the next Test match.
Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja will be available for the Boxing Day test match against Australia after recovering from a shoulder problem, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) said on Sunday.
"I think it may be a surprise, what they actually dish out next week, but I think we'll just sort of review this week and enjoy a moment of reflecting on the hard work we've had to do this week and then we'll focus on Melbourne when we get there".
"I think it'll be the same old thing of patience, the MCG is never a really quick scoring ground anyway, so that'll be the key, just realising things will take a while to evolve".
Meanwhile, Ajinkya Rahane, despite losing the second Test looked upbeat about his team's prospects going into the most important Test match.
"Absolutely [Kohli is at the peak of his powers], I mean the one thing that you have to tell when you look at his career".
He was caught out swearing on day five of the second Test, remarking he must be "hearing s--" while mulling whether to review a caught-behind appeal, but that barely caused a ripple compared to comments about counterpart Virat Kohli. Unapologetically passionate about indie music and the South Australian Redbacks, Daniel's chief cricketing achievement was to dismiss Wisden Almanack editor Lawrence Booth in the 2010 Ashes press match in Perth - a rare Australian victory that summer.
Apart from Jadeja, there was better news as well for batsman Rohit Sharma, who played the opener in Adelaide but missed Perth due to a lower back injury suffered during fielding practice. "We feel that we're going to need Mitch's bowling at some point". Rohit Sharma, though, was back to fitness, slotting in at No. 6.

A young kid from Australia named Brave Archie, who already fought bigger battles in life more than most of the people in the world has been added to Australia's squad for the Boxing Day Test against India.
In such a scenario, both teams know that even one lost session in Melbourne can impact the final outcome of the series.
"We have gone through a bad phase, but in sport you should say never say never".
"If he was 80 per cent fit here, he (would) play".
Shastri, however, admitted that top-order has been an issue for the team with both KL Rahul and Murali Vijay failing in four successive innings in the two Tests.
"I apologised straight away because I hit him and it wasn't intentional", Johnson said.
"I'm sure Tim and myself understand what happened and we don't want to do something unnecessary".
