Lehmann ready to move on in 2019

13th January 2018, 15:01 by Tom Hill

Australia boss Darren Lehmann has announced he will walk away from his current position after the 2019 Ashes series in England.

Lehmann signed a contract extension in August 2016 and he admitted at the time that he would probably step down after the end of his deal, which runs out following the next Ashes Test series.

The former bowler has been the national coach since 2013 and the 47-year-old has enjoyed plenty of success so far.

He led them to victory in the 2015 World Cup and the Aussies have already won the current Ashes series with two Tests still to play.

When asked about his future, he told Fox Sports: "That will be it. It will be a case of too much time, too much travel.

"For me, I've really enjoyed the role and [am] loving it. We'll just get to that point and work out what we do from there."
