Darren Lehmann makes Stuart Broad "cheat" claim

Australia coach Darren Lehmann accuses England bowler Stuart Broad of "blatant cheating" during the Ashes series this summer.

Australia coach Darren Lehmann has accused Stuart Broad of "blatant cheating" during The Ashes this summer.

Lehmann was referring to Broad's refusal to walk after appearing to edge the ball to first slip during the first Test match, and the recently-appointed coach has insisted that he hopes the Australian public make Broad "cry" during the winter's Ashes series in Australia.

The 43-year-old told Australian radio station Triple M: "The players haven't forgotten. They call him everything under the sun as he walks past, and I hope the Australian public are the same.

"It was blatant cheating. I don't advocate walking, but when you edge it to first slip, it's pretty hard.

"From my point of view, I hope the Australian public make it hard for him, make him cry and go home."

The fifth and final Test match begins at The Oval on Wednesday, with Australia already 3-0 down in the series.
