Sydney: Australian coach Darren Lehmann has insisted that he will not copy England`s model and make changes to his squad by resting Test stars for the upcoming one-day tour to India.

With big names such as Stuart Broad, Alastair Cook and Graeme Swann rested for the one-dayers in England, Australia beat the hosts 2-1 winning in Manchester and Southampton but losing in Cardiff.

According to News.com.au, Australia will play in one Twenty20 match on October 10 and then seven 50-over games against India, with Lehmann saying that he will be playing the best players in his arsenal to win every match against India.

Stating that he does not care what England does, Lehmann also said that Australia has achieved their goal of winning the ODI series against England and is now out to win every game that they will play in the future, adding that he will make sure that Australia has the best team in every game that they will play from now on.

Captain Michael Clarke, who scored 75 in the series clinching win in Southampton on Tuesday, is reportedly expected to tour India despite the looming home Ashes series and his chronic back problems, with Lehmann saying that Clarke will be checked out by doctors when he returns to Australia and will be picked for the tour if he is fit.
