Australia coach Darren Lehmann has accused Stuart Broad of ‘cheating’ his side after the latter claimed that he was not sorry for not walking after clearly edging the ball to first slip in the first Ashes Test. Lehmann called on the Australian fans to give him some stick and send him back in tears when England tours Australia for the Ashes towards the end of the year.

Lehmann was asked on the music radio station Triple M about Broad’s defence after refusing to walk. He was clearly angered to learn about Broad’s unapologetic behaviour.

“Certainly our players haven’t forgotten, they’re calling him everything under the sun as they go past,” he said, as reported by the Guardian.

“I hope the Australian public are the same because that was just blatant cheating. I don’t advocate walking but when you hit it to first slip it’s pretty hard.

“From my point of view I just hope the Australian public give it to him right from the word go for the whole summer and I hope he cries and he goes home.

“I just hope everyone gets stuck into him because the way he’s carried on and the way he’s commented in public about it is ridiculous. “He hit it to first slip … and the biggest problem there is the poor umpire cops all the crap that he gets in paper and Stuart Broad makes them look like fools.

“From my point of view it’s poor, so I hope the public actually get stuck into him.”
