Indian captain Sourav Ganguly on Sunday urged his batsmen to "set their minds right" ahead of the important Test series against Australia as yet another batting failure saw his side crashing out of the ICC Champions Trophy cricket tournament with a three-wicket loss to Pakistan.

Sourav seemed very concerned with the way his batsmen have fared since coming from a long break after the Pakistan series.

"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."
