Cape Town - The short preparation time afforded Australia for their two-Test tour to Bangladesh doesn't trouble head coach Darren Lehmann.
Lehmann said they could only know if they were underprepared once
they clashed with the Tigers in the first Test in Mirpur on August 27.
Australia's preparation time had been cut into by the pay dispute between the player's representatives and Cricket Australia.
"Until you get there you don't know," Lehmann told Cricket Australia's website.
"We're squeezing enough in this next week, and guys have been doing stuff with their states.
"Even through the MOU (negotiations) they were training and preparing as though they were playing.
"So in terms of fitness, they are probably ahead of the game, they're really strong and fit which is really pleasing.
"Now it's just getting their skills up to the required level before we leave."
Lehmann feels that the time off after the Champions Trophy has been beneficial for the players after a very long season.
"The break's been good for some of them, they've been at
the back of a long summer with a lot of travel in the schedule so
sometimes a refreshed mindset is really important," added Lehmann.
"They've all come in really excited to get going again."
