Darren Lehmann steps down as Australian cricket team coach


New Delhi: Darren Lehmann announced that the fourth and final Test of the series vs the South African cricket team will be his last match as coach of the Australian cricket team.

“This will be my last Test as head coach of the Australian cricket team,” Lehmann told a press conference on the eve of the match. “Saying goodbye to the players was the toughest thing I have ever had to do.”

Lehmann admitted he made this decision partly because of the abuse his family received over a ball-tampering scandal that has rocked the sport.

Lehmann added that he came to his decision after watching news coverage of Steve Smith and Cameron Bancroft returning home having confessed to cheating in the third test last weekend.
