Adelaide: The series is out of grasp but India opener Gautam Gambhir said the debacle has not affected the team's motivation and the players are focused on winning the fourth and final Test to avoid a whitewash against Australia.
"Every Test is special. You have to be motivated. There is no lack of motivation. You shouldn't be playing cricket if you are not motivated," said Gambhir after the team's practice session ahead of the match starting here on Tuesday.
"The thing is, you don't get bad in one or two series. Just two series back, we were the world's best. That's when your character comes outyou try to back each other and support each other. Back your own team when the entire squad is down," he added.
