Arrongance back in Aussie team: Lehmann

Adelaide, Jan 25: Former Australian batsman Darren Lehmann is impressed with Australia's domination of India in the ongoing Test series and feels the "arrogance" is getting back to the team led by "fantastic" Michael Clarke.

the left-handed batsman was immortalised in bronze at the Adelaide Oval, currently hosting the ongoing fourth and final Test of the series which Asutralia 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.

Lehamann said veterans like Ricky Ponting, who scored a double century today, have done a huge contribution to cricket in Australia.

"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.

Lehamnn, who has represented his country in 177 ODIs 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 couldnt 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."
