Australia head coach signs new deal on Lehmann's terms


Darren Lehmann has signed a new contract to stay on as Australia head coach until October 2019.

Lehmann has been a big hit since replacing the sacked Mickey Arthur three years ago, masterminding a World Cup triumph on home soil last year and guiding his country to the top of the Test and one-day international rankings.

The former Australia batsman also oversaw a 5-0 Ashes whitewash of England in 2013-14 and it was announced on Monday that he will stay on in his role for a further three years.
