Former Australian Cricket Coach Darren Lehmann set for new role with Cricket Australia.

AFTER resigning from head coach of Australia six weeks ago, Darren Lehmann is now set for a new role with Cricket Australia.

Lehmann was cleared of any involvement in ball-tampering on the tour of South Africa and has landed a new contract with Cricket Australia as the coach of the national performance squad from 28 May until October.

Former Australian players Chris Rogers and Ryan Harris will also be working alongside Lehmann.

National performance program head coach Troy Cooley told “I had a good chat with him and he was really keen to continue his coaching,”

“Darren has already told me he is relishing the opportunity, so it’s win-win all round.”

“To have someone who’s got that experience matching up with our coaching staff, it’s invaluable,” he said.
