Home' Trinidad and Tobago Guardian : July 13th 2015 Contents CARDIFF---Don t expect much change in
Australia s batting lineup, after coach Dar-
ren Lehmann called their failure in the
first Ashes test "a minor hiccup."
The top and middle order produced only
two half-centuries as they were bowled out
for 308 and 242 in losing to England by 169
runs at Sophia Gardens on Saturday with
a day to spare.
Lehmann said his batsmen had been too
good for too long for him to lose faith in
them at the first hurdle.
"Our prep s been excellent considering
we came off West Indies, where the wickets
were very similar, then the two tour games---
so they were good to go. It s a minor hiccup,"
"We have to show the discipline required
to make big runs on these type of wickets,
and bat a lot longer. There was some good
bowling from England, full credit to them,
but our batters could probably stay in a little
bit longer with (better) shot selection.
"That s not good enough for the standard
of our batters. They re quality players, and
they ll come back well."
He was disappointed with allrounder
Shane Watson, who was trapped twice, for
the 28th and 29th times in 59 tests. Lehmann
regarded both decisions as tight calls, and
said Watson was doing his best to fix his
problem, but he added all of the main bats-
men had a tough time in Cardiff.
Picking Watson ahead of the more in-
form Mitch Marsh for Cardiff was "a tight
call," and Lehmann said they would wait to
see what the pitch was like for the Lord s
test starting on Thursday before deciding
whether to keep Watson.
Watson didn t take any wickets either,
but Lehmann said he was less concerned
with his bowlers, even though there was a
major doubt about left-arm paceman
Mitchell Starc, Australia s most potent
bowler in Cardiff.
Starc s right ankle bone spurs flared again
in the test, and he needed painkillers to
bowl 16 overs (for two wickets) in England s
second innings, and bat for an hour on Sat-
urday, running well between the wickets.
Lehmann said there was no need to press
Starc, if he was unfit, into action at Lord s
to salvage the series.
The alternatives to Starc were Peter Siddle,
on his third Ashes tour, and Pat Cummins,
who was quick but has been on a strict diet
of limited-overs matches for two years.
"We ve got enough armoury there to get
20 wickets," Lehmann said confidently.
He was also certain his other left-arm
quick, Mitchell Johnson, would rebound
after match figures of 41-5-180-2. Johnson
didn t need to change his action for the less
bouncy pitches, Lehmann added.
