Lehmann warns players after heavy defeat

Deccan Chargers coach Darren Lehmann has sent out a warning to his players as the defending champions found themselves on the brink of elimination.

After last nights 63 run defeat against the Mumbai Indians the Chargers need to win at least 5 of their last 6 games to stand any chance of reaching the knock out stages of this years IPL tournament.

Lehmannís team have now lost 4 games in a row and will need to get back to winning ways on Monday against the Rajasthan Royals.

"We have to win five out of the next six games. We have to get our act together or else we are out of the tournament," said Lehmann.

"We need to move on and hopefully Nagpur will prove lucky. We bowled well in patches and dropped too many catches. We left too many runs to chase for the batsmen. The batting was very disappointing," he added.

"We started reasonably well but then lost three wickets together. We lost two more in a bunch later. Indians as well as overseas players have disappointed. As a team we are not doing well. We have to get better quickly."
