CRICKET: Australia coach Lehmann fined for Stuart Broad blast
2013-08-23 08:51:05 | (0 Comments)
Australia coach Darren Lehmann has been fined 20 per cent of his match fee following his criticism of England bowler Stuart Broad on an Australian radio programme.
After Broad admitted he edged a ball and did not walk in the first Test, Lehmann said it was "blatant cheating."
Lehmann pleaded guilty to a charge of publicly criticising and making inappropriate comments.
The 43-year-old replaced Mickey Arthur as Australia coach 16 days before the start of the current Ashes series, in which his team trail 3-0 with one Test to complete.
His comments about Broad were made on the eve of the final Test at The Oval during a live interview with Australian radio network Triple M.
The former batsman, who played 27 Tests and 117 one-day internationals for Australia between 1996 and 2005, was found to have breached the International Cricket Council Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel.
