Officials say they are only looking forward despite the scandal looming over the series.
Australian cricket coach Darren Lehmann has attempted to move on from the controversial decision of Stuart Broad, given not out in England’s second innings, to stand his ground when he edged a catch to slip.
Australia were unable to contest the decision as they had used both their two permitted Decision Review system challenges in the innings in their 14-run loss to England in the first Test match at Trent Bridge.
“It’s dealt with as far as I’m concerned,” Lehmann said of the Broad incident. “We just move on and get on with it.
“The DRS has improved the decision-making process… We’ve got to get better at using it, basically.”
Lehmann spent several seasons with English county Yorkshire where his friend, Jason Gillespie, the former Australia fast bowler, is now coach.
He said talking to Gillespie had helped put the Ashes into context.
“After the game last (Saturday) night I spoke to one of my great mates, Jason Gillespie, who lost his father yesterday,” he added.
“That puts things in a bit of perspective. So we’re playing a game, yes it’s a big Ashes series but as we talk about all the time there’s more important things that go on than a game of cricket.”
England lead the best-of-five series 1-0 after their thrilling win during the afternoon session on Sunday.
