Everything old is new again as ‘Boof’ takes the reigns of national side.
He might be the new sheriff in town, but not that long ago Darren Lehmann was a star of the show.
While has taken the new job under difficult circumstances, with just 16 days before the first Test match of the Ashes at Trent Bridge, Lehmann could be the man for the job.
Possessed with a cricketing brain and a no-nonsense attitude to dealing with players, Lehmann could squeeze every last drop of talent out of the current side.
However, the biggest task will be getting the current squad on the same page after they have gained more headlines for their activities off the field than on it.
