Australian pacer Mitchell Johnson heaped praise on coach Darren Lehmann and spoke about his comeback journey before winning the Ashes 5-0. Johnson said that Lehmann brought back the fun in to the game in the Australian dressing room.


“It’s about having a belief in my own ability. It was all about getting mentally stronger. Tough experiences do impact you. But I had done all training not knowing what to expect. I had bit of fun with it [Barmy Army] and at time I just ignore,” Johnson said.


“I loved bowling with Ryan Harris and Peter Siddle and even Nathan Lyon. Harris had wished me after I was selected and we all do complement each other,” Johnson said after the good show by the bowlers.
