Lehmann says Oz team 'not thinking' about England's problems ahead of fourth Test

Sydney, Dec 23 : Australian coach Darren Lehmann has said that his team isn't thinking about England's mounting problems ahead of the Boxing Day Test in Melbourne.


According to The Daily Telegraph, Lehmann and Nathan Lyon have praised Graeme Swann despite the England spinner retiring mid-tour.

However, the Australian coach insisted his focus was solely on his own squad and wouldn't be drawn on the myriad problems engulfing the tourists before the Boxing Day Test, the report said.

Graeme Swann's mid-Ashes series retirement announcement has shocked many people in the cricket community, not least Australia coach Darren Lehmann, the report added.

Lehmann lauded Swann's 255-wicket Test career, but said the batsmen's instructions to launch after his bowling had been important to his team's 3-0 series lead, the report mentioned.
