Former Australian batsman Darren Lehmann will retire from Yorkshire and
end his first-class career in England at the end of this season.
Lehmann arrived at Headingley in 1997 and his 172 on Wednesday in the
County Championship match against Kent was his 25th first-class hundred
for Yorkshire. The 36-year-old Lehmann, who played 27 Tests for
Australia, said: “I have had some great times playing for Yorkshire
over the years and I have been honoured to wear the White Rose of this
famous county. I will certainly miss the players, staff and supporters
who have been fantastic to me over the years,” added the Australian.
