Another candidate for England cricket coach emerges

4:37 pm on 11 January 2009

The former Australia all-rounder Darren Lehmann has joined the list of potential candidates to take over as England cricket coach.

The role made vacant following the sacking of Peter Moores, who clashed with the then captain Kevin Pietersen.

Lehmann, who has yet to discuss his availability with English cricket officials, says he is interested in the coaching position.

He says he'll talk to them if they want to talk to him.

Lehmann played 27 tests and 117 one-day internationals for Australia and was a member of the teams that won the 1999 and 2003 World Cups.

The 38-year-old recently turned his hand to coaching after retiring in 2007, taking charge of Australia's academy side and an Indian Premier League team.
