    Lehmann left out of Australian touring squad

    http://aus.cricinfo.com/link_to_data...10FEB2005.html

    Looks like that's it for Darren. The Australian selectors seem to have developed a fondness for dumping players indirectly by just failing to name them in a squad, or not renew their contracts. The same thing happened to Bichel and Bevan.

    Good news for Hayden though, looks like he will get another shot in the ODIs.

    another reason why the aussie selectors are a joke.....it takes them 3 bad games to drop lehmann, and an infinite number of games to drop hayden.
    Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
    Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!

    Darren Lehman has NEVER received a fair go from the Aus selectors.

    If he played for any other country, he would have a minimum of 20 test centuries to his name.

    Its a disgrace that the only time that he received an extended run in the team was in his early to mid 30s.

    And James Hopes ....... WTF?

    Average bat and ordinary bowler.

    I cannot believe that our cupboard is so bare.

    Perhaps you should change your signature TEC which states you think Tendulkar is the most overated player of all time and replace it with Hayden.

    I take it you think he's overated in ODI's as well as Tests??

    Rumur has it Lehmann was left out because of his weight. He's been booked into fat camp for the duration of the NZ tour and his position in the team will be reassessed pending the results of his time in camp.

    Cant say im too surprised, i certainly would have given him more time though, hes been through alot this summer.

    Good call for mine, James Hopes certainly has played some good cricket this summer, will be interesting to see if he gets a game.

    yeah, a list a limited overs batting average of 23.85 and bowling average of 25.58 isnt too bad. i doubt hell get much of a look see, maybe if the last game is a rubber he might get a game.

    Lehmann hasn't played well since the Sri Lankan tour in April of last year. That's a bit longer than three games. He had a shocking tour of India and a poor home summer. And given that Hayden was the top Australian scorer in ODIs in 2004, he hasn't been out of form for very long at all.

    Lehmann wouldnt fit into things for 2007. Hence the drop. Good call 2 years before the cup as there is enough time for some other player to find his place into the team.

    Disappointing that its been a struggle for Watson though with injuries right from 2003.

    Well pratyush.... Lehmann deserves to be in the team for some more time... See his form in the recent VB series was decent.... And also he always delivers under pressure and crunch situation... He himself got his chance a bit late... so he should be given a slot in the team for some more time atleast... Say another series...
    Cricket lives forever....

    do you know what the difference between tests and ODIs is?
    when you do, then it would be worthwhile to have an argument with you.
