Born: 5/2/70
Teams: South Australia, Yorkshire
ODI debut: 30/8/96
Past World Cups: 1999

Left-handed batsman
Slow left-arm bowler

Lehmann has been labelled a one-day specialist and as a result has missed out on Australia's golden era in the five-day game.

In any other country he would undoubtedly have been a key player in both forms of the game having been a prodigious run-scorer at domestic level in both Australia and England for more than a decade.

However, he earned consolation for his limited opportunities by hitting the winning runs in the last World Cup final at Lord's.

Aggressive and experienced, Lehmann would seem the perfect man to occupy a middle-order berth.

But he has since been in and out of the team and was cast in the wilderness throughout 2000.

But he will return to South Africa with good memories having put some more esteemed of his team-mates in the shade with an average of more than 50 during the seven-match series in 2002.
