Australia’s former head coach Darren Lehmann will undergo a heart bypass operation on Sunday. The veteran player suffered chest pain while watching his son bat during a Cricket Australia XI’s game and he was rushed to the hospital in an emergency ward.
He was previously also treated for deep venous thrombosis (DVT) back in 2016. Lehmann coached Australia from 2013 to 2018 and his stint ended following the ball tampering incident in Cape Town.
Lehmann received best wishes from all over the country and from the cricket world as well. He has been a prominent name in Australia’s cricket history with 117 ODI matches, 27 Test matches, and 284 First-Class games to his name. The cricket world wishes him a speedy recovery.
