Video - We Have To Bat Well Tomorrow - Lehmann

Australia coach Darren Lehmann says the opening day of the 2013 Ashes series was 'even-stevens' but knows his team needs to bat well on day two.

The tourists closed a gripping first day at Trent Bridge on 75 for four after England were bowled out for 215 as Australia made good use of a swinging ball.

However, Lehmann paid tribute to England's new ball attack of James Anderson and Steven Finn, saying that they outbowled his young attack.

"I thought they bowled really well tonight, probably better than we bowled with the new ball to be fair, but that's something we can improve upon, which is good as well," he said.

"We managed to bowl them out for 215, which was outstanding in the end, and then they bowled really well tonight, so we have to bat well tomorrow and make a lot of runs."
