    Surely, I don't mind Lehmann if does not give any sorts of home-works. This Aussie side does not look the Invincibles, but if they can play something extra ordinary it would be relief to Aussie supporters. May the good lord bless this team.

    I can't understand this strategy by Cricket Australia and the timing! How can you sack a coach mid tour! Lehman should have headed this team at least in Champions Trophy to understand things but just before 15 days, I don't see him doing wonders with this team. Australians are making things harder for themselves for this Ashes campaign... Unbelievable...

    lets hope. its good step forward . we need Australia team to be back in world of cricket strongly, so that we have good series ahead of us. first step you need to revisit is to get WARNER back in team immediately.good luck

    Great choice!!! Even though it came late I think it is the right move. He never had the mojo of an Australian leader; he just looked out of sort an odd one out in the pack. His presence had a dragging feeling, it was like he was dragging everone behind and stats will prove the point. Consider how many match winners have lost form or stopped performing under his reign Watson,Warner to name the latest ones. I think under Lehman they should do well in England.
