We said that Darren Lehmann’s final match would be worth watching.
Earlier this week, in his final one-day game, Lehmann played the lead role in a record run-chase in Australian domestic one-day cricket. He hit 126 not out off 104 balls as South Australia overhauled Western Australia’s 305. We could add the video, or we could just link to it at The Corridor.
Now, in his final first-class match, he’s done it again. Western Australia were all out for 236 (Jason Gillespie taking 7-58) and South Australia would have gone the same way but for our hero. His innings of 167 represented a sizable chunk of 397 all out and he did it off just 185 balls – entertaining to the last.
Who’ll be our favourite fat, bald cricketer now? We don’t know.
