Australia took drastic action yesterday to spare
the team potential humiliation in the Ashes series
against England, firing coach Mickey Arthur and
replacing him with former national-team batsman
Darren Lehmann just 16 days ahead of the first
And on a day of major upheaval within embattled
Cricket Australia, captain Michael Clarke---who is
currently out injured---had his long-standing desire
to step down as a selector accepted so he can focus
completely on the team.
It leaves the Australians in even deeper turmoil
approaching the eagerly anticipated series against its
old foe, with the tourists already woefully out of
form, battling disciplinary problems within the squad
and now with a new man in charge needing to learn
the ropes quickly.
"The timing of this decision will no doubt have
surprised and indeed shocked some people," Cricket
Australia chief executive James Sutherland said of
the choice to change coaches so close to an Ashes
series. "It s a not a decision that we ve taken lightly,
but the Baggy Green cap is something that is impor-
tant to all Australian cricketers, is one of the great
prizes in Australian sport.
"What we feel is that the Australian cricket fans
ISLAMABAD---The acting chairman of the Pakistan
Cricket Board says he will ask the International Cricket
Council to reconsider the five-year ban on young fast
bowler Mohammad Amir for spot-fixing.
Najam Sethi is scheduled to attend the ICC board
meeting in England later this week where he plans
to raise the issue of Amir s ban.
"Amir is a great star," Sethi said in Lahore yesterday.
"I will try to make the ICC understand that Amir
is a young cricketer, he has already served 2, 2 1/2
years of his ban."
Amir is banned until September 2015 for bowling
deliberate no-balls during a Test match against Eng-
land in 2010. The leftarm fast bowler pleaded guilty
and did not appeal against the ban. Appeals by his
teammates Mohammad Asif and Salman Butt were
rejected by Court of Arbitration for Sport.
Amir was also sentenced to six months in London
for cheating but was released from prison last year
due to good behavior after serving half his sentence.
Sethi took charge as acting chairman on Monday
after a judge at the Islamabad High Court directed
the government to replace Zaka Ashraf, whose election
was challenged by a former official.
Among Sethi s top priorities: representing Pakistan at
the ICC meeting; approving the team for next month s
one-day and Twenty20 series against the West Indies;
and conducting fair and transparent elections in the PCB.
Sethi refused to take the blame for Pakistan s poor
performance in the recent Champions Trophy where
Misbah ul Haq s team lost all three group matches,
could not score beyond 170 runs in the three games
and senior batsmen like Shoaib Malik, Imran Farhat
and Kamran Akmal failed miserably.
"I didn t make (choose) the team for Champions
Trophy," Sethi said.
Sethi is a prominent journalist and was the caretaker
chief minister of Punjab province in the interim gov-
ernment before general elections in May. (AP)

Lehmann said he has signed a two-year deal, ending
Arthur s 19-month tenure that was dogged by poor
results and player misbehavior.
The Australians lost a Test series 4-0 in India this
year and failed to win a match in their defence of
the Champions Trophy, which has just concluded in
Off the pitch, Arthur polarised public opinion when
he dropped four players---including vice-captain
Shane Watson---from his team for the third test in
India for failing to complete written reports on their
views of the team s performance. The embarrassing
saga was dubbed "Homeworkgate."
Arthur might also have been held partly responsible
for an off-field incident during the Champions Trophy
involving opening batsman David Warner, who was
reportedly drunk when he aimed a punch at England
batsman Joe Root at a nightclub in Birmingham after
the 43-run loss to England in a group match. Warner,
who was fined this year following a Twitter rant at
senior journalists, has been suspended until the first

put up in front of the media in Bristol---where the
Australians are currently based ahead of a tour match
against Somerset starting Wednesday---on another
chastening day for Australian cricket.
Clarke, placed in the same position two weeks ago
amid Warner s latest indiscretion, played down the
effect such management changes would have ahead
of the Ashes.
