Mumbai: India skipper Mithali Raj blamed her bowlers after her team was knocked out of the ICC Women World Cup in Mumbai on Tuesday, saying all of them were "off colour" in the crucial Group A match against Sri Lanka.

"The Sri Lankan batters scored most of their runs at square of the wicket. It shows as a bowler where you are bowling. All the bowlers were off colour today. We can expect one or two bowlers of colour a day but not all of them," Raj said after the 138-run drubbing.

Considering the home side's depth in bowling, Raj said she was surprised after the tourists posted 282 for five at the Brabourne Stadium.
