Ashes 2017/18: Jake Lehmann a genuine Test contender, Australia v England Gabba

DARREN Lehmann could be coaching his son by the end of the Ashes after having to leave the selection room when his name was raised last week.

Asked whether his son Jake’s name got a mention in the marathon Test selection meeting last Wednesday, Lehmann said “he did and I had to go out — I wasn’t gone for long so I knew he was not in.’’

Lehmann smiled as he said it but the very fact Jake was mentioned shows how widely the selectors cast their net and how baby Boof is a genuine Test contender.

Lehmann junior would appear to have been in contention for the No 6 spot filled by the mercurial Shaun Marsh.
