Darren Lehmann is a stockily-built strokeplayer who treats spectators to an aweless mixture of swashbuckling aggression and talent.

He has been labelled as a one-day specialist and as a result has missed out on Australia's golden era in the five-day game.

Lehmann was the stand-in vice captain for the Australian team that toured India in 2004.

In any other country he would undoubtedly have been a key player in both forms of the game having been a prodigious run-scorer at domestic level in both Australia and England for more than a decade.

Lehmann is a free-scoring left-handed batsman and an underestimated left-arm orthodox spin bowler.

Aggressive and experienced, Lehmann would seem the perfect man to occupy a middle-order berth.
