Adelaide:

India's stand-in skipper Virender Sehwag said on Saturday that the 4-0 defeat against Australia was not because of lack of trying. India lost the final Test by 298 runs to go down 0-4 in the series.

Speaking to media-persons after the Test, Sehwag said that players tried but plans were not executed 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.

Sehwag defended the coaching staff saying that they were doing their job well. "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."

Defeat at Adelaide was India's eight consecutive overseas loss.
