Video - Lehmann Pleased With Improvement

Darren Lehmann tells the media at Old Trafford that his Australia team are continuing on a learning process ahead of the fourth Ashes Test at Chester-le-Street.

The drawn Test at Old Trafford meant that England retained the Ashes but it ended a run of six straight defeats for Australia.

Furthermore, they dominated for large periods of the match and the rain prevented them from mounting a realistic victory charge on the final day.

"I think, all the time, what you have to do is learn and our blokes our learning," he said.

"You can see that over the last five days. And again, if you can learn to repeat that in back to back Test matches so.... that is important for our group and we know that. We just had a good chat.

"We had a few people come in and say a few words, which is great you know.... learning from some really good people. Warney (Shane Warne) was in there and Michael (Clarke) had some great things to say to the players. It's just about learning the game and to keep that level head."

He added that he and his players would now need to put the fact that their chance of regaining the Ashes has gone behind them and move on to Durham and The Oval in a positive mood.

"Obviously, forget the Ashes now and make sure we are best prepared for Durham and play with the same group we wanted to play here, and win the game, and then move to the Oval and then move back home," he said when asked about what comes next.

"We can't look too far ahead, that Ashes is a long way away, the home series, and all we can concentrate on is there two Test matches."
