Radio station to foot bill for Boof

8:52 am on 24 August 2013

Australia's Triple M radio station will pay the fine imposed on national cricket coach Darren Lehmann for disparaging comments he made about England's Stuart Broad in an interview with the broadcaster.

Lehmann, nicknamed Boof, was fined 20 percent of his match fee for accusing Broad of "blatant cheating" in the first Ashes test of the ongoing series and called on Australian fans to send the fast bowler home from the return series in tears.

Lehmann was critical of Broad for refusing to walk after he nicked the ball and called on the Australian public to heckle the player.
