Kanpur: J Y Lele, secretary of the Board of Control for Cricket in India, on Wednesday rejected skipper Sachin Tendulkars contention that the Indian team's performance during the recently concluded tour to Australia was bad because the players were tired out by a tight schedule.

However, Lele owned the Boards moral responsibility for the dismal performance of the Indian squad.

Talking to reporters in Kanpur, Lele said there was a rest period of five days between the Test match series and one dayers and this resting period was enough for any team or player to retain fitness.

Moreover, before leaving for Australia, Indian skipper Tendulkar and coach Kapil Dev had announced that the team was fit.

However, Lele declined to comment on the performance of the players, saying that the team managers should think over it.
