Australia coach Darren Lehmann expects the upcoming limited-overs series against India to be an exciting one given the “aggressive” brand of cricket that Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s men have been playing of late.

“They are a good one-day side as they made the semis of the World Cup. They are a quality side so from our point of view we have got to start well and play well against them. We haven’t played in Perth for a while, so that is exciting for us and I feel it’s a fast bouncy track,” Lehmann said at the WACA. “They are playing an aggressive brand of cricket as well, so I don’t really see that changing in the next five games,” he added.

Lehmann believes the youngsters in his side are up for the challenge. “It will be a good challenge for them. We play top cricket and India play the same way, so it will be an exciting series,” he said. Talking about the seniors, Lehmann said that skipper Steven Smith and David Warner are very keen to lock horns against India. “Yes, Warner and Smith will certainly play. Of course Daves is going to and fro with the baby but that will be later and he is keen to play. Yes, if something happens earlier, we have an extra batter to take his place,” he added.
