Abstract:

The appointment of Darren Lehmann as Australia's head cricket coach was a shock after the removal of South African, Mikey Arthur, as national coach. Here in Darren's Lehmann's autobiography of his playing career, we can reflect on who Darren is and how Darren was shaped by his playing career - and why perhaps the team and Australian fans have taken to him so completely. Darren Lehmann was a highly respected batsman. But for a long time he was a champion-in-waiting. Named 12th man for Australia at just 19, he waited 8 years in the wilderness for a chance in the national team. When he was finally called up to the team he understood the high standards and responsibility that representing Australia demands. Worth the Wait, is a revealing look at the values that have underpinned Darren Lehmann's career; the special moments that led to World Cup wins; he discusses his mateship with star players, Shane Warne and Ricky Ponting; and the tragic death of David Hooks, his hero and confidant. A tale of runs and run-ins, friends and competition foes, in turns funny and compelling - Worth the Wait is a story of a player with old-fashioned values that are truly Australian.
