We can see desperation from Indians now: Warner

February 27, 2012 16:55 IST

Taking a dig at the struggling Indian team, Australian opener David Warner said that there disappointment at the two controversial umpiring decisions during Sunday's ODI match was a sign of "desperation".

David WarnerIndia's chances of reaching the finals of the tri-series, which also features Sri Lanka, are very low after they lost to Australia by 87 runs in a crucial match in Sydney.

Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni minced no words in expressing his disappointment at two umpiring decisions, which he felt should have gone his team's way.

Warner said it showed the Indians were desperate.

"We can see the desperation from the Indians this summer ... they're trying to get something out of it," Warner was quoted as saying by The Australian Associated Press.

"They got beaten 4-0 in the Test series and now they're not doing too well in the One-dayers so they're trying to appeal for anything at the moment."

Warner said Indians are too good a side to remain out of form for long.

"They're a very, very good team and there's some serious talent in the side. They definitely haven't lost interest, they're always out there for a contest. They'll find their form eventually, after this series," he quipped.

The swashbuckling batsman, who was man of the match last night, said Indian batsmen were getting affected by minor things like people moving behind the sight-screen.

"Little things are playing on their minds ... so it's obviously affecting their game."
