Rahane also had some advice for the Afghans, whose debut in Test cricket turned into a nightmare as they lost 20 wickets on Friday to lose the match in two days.
After team India's sweet gesture towards the young Afghan team, social media was all praise for the "beautiful" gesture.
Trailing by 474 runs, Afghanistan got off to a awful start as opener Mohammad Shahzad was run out by Pandya was 14.
Ashwin bowled Afghan skipper Asghar Stanikzai for 11 with a handsome off-spinner.
"It was important for us to keep the basics and good habits".
Umesh Yadav removed the openers and Nabi to reduce Afghanistan to 24-4 within seven overs.
Afghanistan are already a long way removed from their early days, when attempting to hit every ball as far as possible was a necessity to prove their manliness.
A few "A" tours will help bridge the gap between Afghanistan and top Test nations, Simmons believes.

In September 2001, two prime Sri Lankan batsmen - Marvan Atapattu and Mahela Jayawardena retired from the game after scoring 201 and 150 runs, respectively, against Bangladesh in a match in the Asia Test Championship in Colombo, thanks to the visitors' insipid bowling.
They began their qualifying campaign for the 2011 World Cup in Jersey in 2008, winning Division Five of the World Cricket League.
"The first two sessions of day one did not go their way, but as the game progressed, they showed glimpses of what they are capable of, but I don't think they will be happy with their performance", said Simmons. However, this being their first Test match, the margin of the loss wouldn't matter much. Players today are bred in a culture of sensational limited-over cricket where the scope of finding the shortcomings in one's game and address it is very narrow and temporary. These guys are experienced, they know what to do.
Afghanistan's introduction to the five-day game exposed major weaknesses in a side bundled out twice in a day for 109 and 103 while responding to India's 474.
India must be anxious that they have to play on a spin track in Bangalore. It's not [always] about in the match, but creating those situations in practice also and thinking and visualising that as batsmen how they are going to play against each opponent. Ashwin took over from Jadeja in the second innings, picking up 4 as the Indian spinners who were said to be a class below Afghanistan's before the match showed their real mettle.
Word of advice: take it on the chin and move on Afghanistan. You can not blame them (for their batting performances).
"With their bowling, they can do a bit of damage to any other team".
Rashid Khan of Afghanistan appeals unsuccessfully during day one of the test matches between India and Afghanistan held at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore on the 14th June 2018. Simmons, however, remained optimistic about the current group."First, their learning curve is huge". Welcome to Test cricket.
