Match Notes

  • Hughes retraces Lehmann's footsteps

    Hughes has one thing in common with his coach - unorthodoxy. But Lehmann's presence should be useful in helping the left-hander deal with spin

  • A good outing for Australia's batsmen

    Fluent knocks from Usman Khawaja and Phillip Hughes and a sparkling half-century from Brad Haddin led the Australians to a six-wicket win over Somerset

  • Pattinson strikes Ashes rhythm

    Less than a year ago, James Pattinson finished an ODI tour of England with mediocre results. A year on, he has used that experience to emerge as Australia's first choice among fast bowlers leading up to the Ashes

  • Hughes among several Australian positives

    Several players have shown their desire to be part of Australia's team for the first Test against England with heartening displays at Taunton

  • Watson responds to Lehmann regime

    Shane Watson followed James Pattinson and Mitchell Starc in providing a tantalising glimpse of the destructive power to be found within this Australian side as they warmed up against Somerset
