Ball-Tampering Row: Lehmann To Step Down As Coach After 4th Test vs SA

Darren Lehmann on Thursday announced the fourth Test against South Africa will be his last game as Australia's head coach, according to a report on Cricket Australia website. Lehmann was speaking at the pre-match press conference ahead of the fourth Test against South Africa beginning Friday. After being cleared of any wrongdoing by Cricket Australia (CA) investigation in the ball-tampering scandal on Wednesday, Lehmann said he fears for the health of Steve Smith, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft. Lehmann comments came after CA slapped one-year bans on Smith and Warner besides announcing a 9-month ban on the 25-year-old opener Bancroft for their involvement in tampering with the cricket ball during the Newlands Test against South Africa.
