Ball tampering row: Darren Lehmann quits as Australian cricket coach

Johannesburg (South Africa), Mar 30 (ANI): An emotional Australian cricket coach Darren Lehmann declared that he will be stepping down after this week's test match against South Africa due to the abuse which he and his family received over ball-tampering scandal that has rocked the sport. He conceded that he should take some blame for the aggressive culture that has developed in the Australian team during his time as coach.

However, Cricket Australia cleared Lehmann of wrongdoing, with the organisation's CEO, James Sutherland, saying Lehmann was as surprised as the thousands of spectators in Cape Town's Newlands Stadium and millions more watching the images at home.
