Aussies Sack Coach On Eve Of Ashes


Update :  cricinfo are running the story 


"Mickey Arthur has been sacked as Australia's head coach less than three weeks before the start of the Ashes. Cricket Australia is yet to officially announce the decision but the chief executive James Sutherland and general manager of team performance Pat Howard are due to hold a press conference in Bristol on Monday morning (UK time) to confirm the move. 

Darren Lehmann, the successful Queensland coach, is considered a leading contender to replace Arthur at short notice. Lehmann is in England having just finished a tour as mentor of the Australia A outfit and has won rave reviews for the tough and somewhat old-school approach he has taken with Queensland since he was appointed in 2011."

Update 2 : Its was a different story a few months ago


They denied Darren Lehmann was being considered then and now is rumored to be taking over, just goes to prove that old sayin "Dont believe anything till been denied" ;)
