Lehmann charged over Samuels bowling comments



Former Australia batsman Darren Lehmann has been charged under Cricket Australia's code of behavior for questioning the legitimacy of the bowling action of West Indies allrounder Marlon Samuels.

Lehmann, who coaches Brisbane Heat in the Twenty20 Big Bash League, called for an examination of Samuels' action after a match against Melbourne Renegades on Saturday.

Samuels' bowling played a part in the Renegades' win and Lehmann later asked how the offspinner could bowl at 120 kilometres per hour off a run-up of just a few paces.

Lehmann said he spoken to the umpires because "I just want something done. He couldn't bowl in the (Indian Premier League) last year, yet he can bowl in the BBL."

Lehmann was charged under a clause in the code which prohibits detrimental public comment.
