Australia coach Darren Lehmann said that he was disappointed to lose the Ashes, but found a lot of positives in his side.

England retained the Ashes on August 5, 2013 as the third Test at Old Trafford ended in a draw. Australia were in the driver’s seat for most of the match and could have had realistic chances of winning the match if not for rain and bad light to play spoilsport.

Lehmann also said that they have changed the perceptions people had about the current Australian side. He also said that they will look to select the best eleven possible to win the fourth Test in Durham at Chester-Le-Street starting on August 9, 2013.
