Like the arrogance back in Aussie team: Lehmann
Lehmann, who played 27 Tests, was immortalised in bronze at the Adelaide Oval which is hosting the fourth and final Test of the series which Australia have already won 3-0.
"They`re playing with a bit of steel and a bit of arrogance, which I like," Lehmann said.
"They`re starting to take the game on, and when you`re scoring 340 on the first day, that leads into big scores and quick scores," he added.
Lehmann said veterans such as Ricky Ponting, who scored a double hundred today, have had a huge role to play in Australia`s success. "They were fantastic (on day one). Clarke`s got better and better as captain, hasn`t he? He keeps making hundreds, Ponting`s back to his old form, which is great to see, so they`ll pile on the runs," he was quoted as saying by `Fox Sports`.
The flamboyant former batsman, who also played 177 ODIs for Australia as well as 283 first-class matches for South Australia, unveiled his statue at the stadium. "They could have had a bit more weight on it, but they probably couldn`t afford more bronze," Lehmann said.
"It`s a huge honour to have this, at my home of cricket. To be 22 yards away from one of my great mates Jason Gillespie – I don`t think I`d hit him that far with that shot, but it looks really good, he`s (Martin) done a great job.
