LOWERHOUSE CRICKET CLUB PROUDLY PRESENTS
An Evening with Darren Lehmann
Following on from previous successful events with international cricketers Jeff Thomson, Barry Richards and Merv Hughes, Lowerhouse Cricket Club are delighted to welcome ex Australian international cricketer and more recently international coach, Darren Lehmann to the Harry Brooks Foundation Ground on Thursday 22 August 2019 from 19:30.
A prolific run-scorer at domestic level in Australia and England, Darren Lehmann might have played more Test cricket but for the abundance of talented batsmen in Australia in the 1990s and early 2000s. As a stocky, free-scoring left-hander, Lehmann was able to treat spectators to an audacious mixture of aggression and deft finesse.
Following a great playing career, Darren entered coaching via the IPL, where he was at the helm of the Deccan Chargers when they won the tournament in 2009. Lehmann was named coach of Queensland in early 2011 and quickly won the respect of the players for his straightforward approach.
Under Lehmann, the Bulls won the 2011-12 Sheffield Shield and the 2012-13 Ryobi Cup. His success and popularity with his players made him an attractive candidate for higher coaching honours and Cricket Australia sprung a surprise by sacking Mickey Arthur and naming Lehmann coach of the national side less than three weeks before the start of the 2013 Ashes.
Lehmann stepped down as head coach after the fourth test match against South Africa in March 2018, following the ball tampering scandal during that match.
Reserve your ticket now to ensure you don’t miss a great evening with one of cricket’s most colourful characters. Darren will be interviewed by ex-Yorkshire County player Richard Blakey and also take part in a question and answer session.
Tickets are priced £20.00 each with £1 postage or free pickup from the club, including hot supper and available now on line below or by e-mailing Tony@lowerhousecc.com. VIP tickets also available guaranteeing front row seats and a personalised signed copy of Darren’s Autobiography “Coach”, e-mail for further details.
