It's probably over for Lehmann

SYDNEY, OCT. 27 . Darren ``Boof'' Lehmann may just have played his last Test for Australia after hobbling off the Vidarbha Cricket Association Ground in Nagpur with a torn hamstring and uncertain future, but with a gutsy, face-saving 70 to his credit.

Lehmann lost his wicket for 70 on the first day of the third Test with India, shortly after sustaining an injury that will jeopardise his ability to bat in the second innings, rule him out of next week's fourth Test and, as a consequence, make it extremely difficult for his international career to continue.

Errol Alcott, the Australian team's physio, said Darren was not in a ``favourable position'' at all and that it was the fourth Test just a week away.

``Our problem is that he's still got a second innings yet Being one week away from the fourth Test, the time frame doesn't augur well for Darren. He's not in a favourable position. We could keep him here for treatment but it's up to Cricket Australia to see what they want to do,'' Alcott was quoted as saying. — ANI
