We fielded like an U-14 side, says furious LehmannJaipur: Deccan Chargers coach Darren Lehmann blasted the poor fielding effort from his boys which led to them not being able to defend a as big a target as 197 against Rajasthan Royals on Tuesday.

"We should have taken the catches and should not have allowed the ball pass between the legs while fielding. It was like an under-14 team on the ground," a visibly disappointed coach Lehmann said the media conference.

"It was really disappointing to suffer three defeats in a row. In fact it should have been 2-1 because it was a flip of the coin case against Mumbai and same here. We bowled badly with the new ball but then it was same for both teams."


Lehmann admitted that Dale Steyn who gave away 44 runs in 3.4 overs was also not in his element.

"Steyn also did not bowl well. Our new ball attack was not up to the mark. It has been a disappointing start of the tournament for us," conceded Lehmann.

Lehmann feels that the boys probably are not paying attention to what is being said to them

"We will have to work on lot of things and perhaps the boys are not listening to what is being told to them. We have to plan different strategy but the dressing room atmosphere is quiet," he added.
