We must raise our fielding standards, says Lehmann

Even though Australia completed an emphatic win in the first Test against New Zealand, coach Darren Lehmann is planning to work his players hard in training track in the coming days at the Western Australia Cricket Association (WACA) ground.

Lehmann identified shortcomings in the Australian bowling in the first match of the three-Test series at the Gabba which they won by 208 runs with two sessions to spare. The Australia coach also claimed that further work was needed to sharpen his team’s fielding, identifying recently recalled batsmen Joe Burns and Usman Khawaja as players who need to lift their intensity to meet the expectations of a top-ranked Test side.
