Jaipur:Opening batsman Virender Sehwag on Saturday said India's loss in the Asia Cup final was like a "bad dream" but added that the defeat would not affect the team's morale in the coming tournaments.

"It was like a bad dream. We played badly and lost. I can't pinpoint why we lost as we did not get the time to ponder over the causes of the debacle," Sehwag, who is in Jaipur for a commercial shoot.

"But bad performance in just one tournament is not going to affect the morale and we are looking forward to play against Pakistan and Australia in Holland and later the ICC Champions Trophy and the Australia series."

Talking about his own performance in Sri Lanka where he scored just 140 runs in six matches at an average of 23.33, Sehwag said it was not because there was any problem with his technique or that the bowlers had sorted him out.

"It happens with everybody, I take it just as a lean period of my career.

"There is nothing wrong with my technique, nor have the bowlers sorted me out. Many other star batsmen have gone through even longer lean periods.

"My bowling too has not affected my batting and I hope to regain form soon."
