Jake Lehmann stepped out of the shadows of his father during the 2015-16 season, scoring the first three centuries of his first-class career and compiling 623 Sheffield Shield runs at 44.50 for South Australia. The son of former Test batsman turned Australia coach Darren Lehmann, Jake made his state debut in 2014-15 after receiving his first rookie contract. A left-hand batsman like his father, he turned his maiden Shield century into a big one when he posted 205 against Tasmania in Hobart in November 2015. Less than two months later, Lehmann made a dramatic start to his T20 career for the Adelaide Strikers. Walking out for his first bat at T20 level, the first ball Lehmann faced was the last delivery of a chase against Hobart Hurricanes. He needed four to win, and instead lifted Simon Milenko over mid-off for six to seal the victory.
