‘I’d love to do it’: Darren Lehmann still has eyes for the top job

Former Australian Cricket coach Darren Lehmann has indicated a desire to be back in the top job.

Lehmann was the team’s coach at the time of the ball-tampering scandal, and stepped down as a result.

Today, Cricket Australia announced they won’t reduce the bans for the players involved, Steve Smith, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft.

There were calls to allow them to play Sheffield Shield cricket while continuing to serve their test bans, but Cricket Australia dismissed the appeal.

Lehmann, now a cricket commentator for Macquarie Sports Radio, tells Ben Fordham he doesn’t understand parts of the decision.

“I understand the international side of it, but I just don’t understand the domestic side of it.

“If you have the likes of Bancroft, Warner and Smith playing it makes our Shield competition stronger.

“The other point… is with this ban they won’t play a red ball game before the first test of the Ashes if selected.”

Lehmann also let slip to Ben that he still has eyes for the top job…

Ben: “Would you like to be back in there?”

Lehmann: “I’d love to do it but at the end of the day what happens, happens.”
