Sehwag lately has been getting out by closing the face of his bat too early and offering leading edges to fielders. On this, he said, "I think the ball is not coming fast and that's why I am closing the face of the bat early."
Youngsters also haven't been scoring consistently and Sehwag admitted Dhoni, for his pyrotechnics late in a match, was missed greatly today.
"It's a matter of playing 50 overs. When the main player (Dhoni) is not playing, and Yuvraj is also not there, somebody has to take the responsibility and take us through.
"They (young players) are working hard. It's difficult to explain (their failure). Australia is not easy batting wickets. There are two new balls, it's difficult for everyone. Others are also struggling.
