Lehmann calls Broad controversy 'learning curve' for him

Johannesburg, Aug 27 (ANI): Australian coach Darren Lehmann has promised to learn from the Ashes controversy he sparked up by launching an inciting attack on England's Stuart Broad.

According to Sport24, Lehmann, whose team were beaten 3-0 by England over the five-Test series, also called on the Australian public to make life so difficult for Broad during the Ashes rematch in Australia later this year that he will want to cry and go home.

The comments earned Lehmann a fine of 20 percent of his match fee from the fifth and final Ashes Test at The Oval, which ended in a draw on Sunday, the report said.

The coach said that it was a good learning curve for a new team boss and he would learn and improve from it, adding that the players were not the only one who needed to improve. (ANI)
