Adelaide, Jan 28: India's Virender Sehwag denies lack of effort for the humiliating loss against Australia which also marked the team's second whitewash in nine months after the disastrous tour of England in July 2011.
After losing the first three tests in Melbourne, Sydney and Perth India handed over another 298 run victory to Australia in the fourth and final Test at Adelaide on Saturday. The recent defeat marks India's eighth successive loss on foreign soil.
Talking to reporters after the Test, the stand-in skipper said that the players did not execute thet plans well.
""We have to plan well and we have to execute well. We didn't do well as openers. It is unfair we are all trying but it is not happening," he said.
Rumours had it that the coaching staff were responsible for India's yet another debacle in away Tests, which was denied by the dashing opener as he said, "Player let us down not support staff they are we are very good. He (Duncan Fletcher) is a good coach. When you can't execute then nothing works." Coaching staff have been doing their job pretty well and its the players, who have let the team down.
