    Lehmann - Is His Career Over?

    He is in a lot of doubt for the 4th test, Clarke is in cracking form, Ponting is due back, he is getting old, he has said that he is willing to step aside for Clarke....

    I'm not too dissimilar a batsman to Bradman.
    Both of us have batting averages below 100.

    Hard to say, but it's certainly not looking good for Boofer...

    i wouldnt count him out, we play NZ at the start of the summer, whos to say Marto or Clarke or Katich wont get injured, Lehmann would be likely to get the call up if hes fit, theres all sorts of ifs and buts, but theres no denying a fully fit Australian line up no longer includes boof...

    I certainly wouldn't count him out just yet...............

    he hasn't had a bad summer - he did very well in SRL, prior to that it would have been Martyn who'se place would have been under some scrutiny........

    another factor to bear in mind is that this is really the first season at this level for Katich & Clarke so far as consistant selection goes, & primarily thay have been selected v predominantly spin attacks...........

    bottom line - it's still early days AFAIC.............

    Like the other guy said a fully fit side wouldn't include him now that Martyn's playing so well and Clarke is the man of the moment. But we all know how often injuries occur and if Lehmann is brought back in to the team and scores a century he will remian in the selectors minds

    Worst comes to worst for Boof he can go and score another 10000 first class runs in pura cup. I wouldn't mind having that option.

    Yeah I think hes stuffed coz of that hammy he pulled. Now clarke is scoring runs you'd think the selectors would let him keep going especially since I would imagine that he would play better in australia, what with the NZ tour imminent.

    Lehmann should play until the Ashes IMHO.

    He is very underrated and is still in form, but must say you Aussies have a discovered a new star in Simon Katich. His knock today was great, I rarely see batsmen come on the front foot and take Kumble to the cleaners like he did. He is exactly what Australia needs, a patient, backfoot player. With Clarke & Katich in for good, I believe Oz has covered the gap left by Waugh twins.

    Lehmann will have to leave sometime or the other, so I don't blame him.

    Exactly right, mate. For a while after Waugh left, the Australian batting lineup was looking pretty fragile; not in the amount of stars there, but the collapses that were occuring for whatever reason. Seems like the problem has been rectified, for the time being, at least.

    If Lehmann is gone for good, as a mad cricket fan I'm going to miss his abstract cricketing style and his ingenius batting.

    even if lehmann isnt in the top 6 in the test side anymore, theres nothing to say he wont be in the one day squad, i see no reason why he shouldnt continue playing ODI if he wants to....

    right on. I'd definitely keep him in the ODI's, hes just so useful.

    Good batter, and very, very handy one day bowling.

    and given the fact theres no logical replacement for him, the guys next in line, Hodge, North, Cosgrove etc... are all different types of player, Mike Hussey is the only one i can see who could replace him, but the selectors reluctance to use him means lehmann will probably retain his spot...
