"We have not been playing good cricket since coming from the break. We are certainly not doing very well. We must set the minds right in order to win," Ganguly said after the Pool C match against the arch-rivals in Birmingham.

"We did well in Pakistan, Australia as well as the World Cup as the batsmen put runs on board. We have not crossed 250 in the last four months and that tells the story."

Ganguly said his side must get its act together against the Australians in the Test series at home.

"We have to get our act together and hope there is no complacency since most of them have done well last year.

"It's (Australian series) going to be a big series. I hope the players will do well."
