The five-ODI and three-T20 series begins here on January 12 and Australia, who have enjoyed big wins against a lacklustre West Indies side in a just-concluded Test series are keen to get going in the one-dayers against the Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led Indian side.
"They are a good one-day side as they made the semis of the World Cup. They are a quality side so from our point of view we have got to start well and play well against them. We haven't played in Perth for a while so that is exciting for us and I feel it's a fast bouncy track," Lehmann told reporters at the WACA.
"They are playing an aggressive brand of cricket as well, so I don't really see that changing in the next five games," he added.
Australia will be missing the experience of the retired Mitchell Johnson and an injured Mitchell Starc but Lehmann believes the youngsters are up  for the challenge.
"It will be a good challenge for them. We play top cricket and India play the same way, so it will be an exciting series," he said.
Lehmann insisted that the side will not have much problem changing gears from the longer format to the limited-overs games.
"The blokes change pretty quickly and we have changed our squad around a fair bit and it is nice to see the guys play a bit of T20 and white ball cricket, nice bit of transition for us," he said.
