With India staring at their second consecutive overseas series whitewash, the BCCI on Friday expressed concern at the lacklusture performance of its team in Australia and said corrective measures will be taken after the series.

“Our players have not been able to perform overseas in the last two series, and we are worried about this. Sometimes players do not do well. There is no question of blaming (anyone) but corrective measures will be taken after the tour,” BCCI vice president Rajiv Shukla told reporters.

India are on the verge of losing the fourth and final Test in Adelaide, having lost the first three matches in Melbourne, Sydney and Perth.

Before this, India were blanked 4-0 in England. Virat Kohli is the only batsman to have scored a century on this tour and the big guns have failed to fire. (PTI)
