|Cricket Australia on Tuesday cleared Lehmann of any involvement in the controversy after announcing severe punishments on captain Steve Smith, vice-captain David Warner and Cameron Bancroft the following day.
"I worry about the three guys immensely. We love all of our players and they are going through a really tough time. I'm not going to resign. We need to change how we play. Previously we butted heads but that's not the way to play going forward. I need to change," Lehmann said at a press conference on Wednesday.
Lehmann also said the way New Zealand play is a model for how to approach the game and even apologised to the Australian fans.
"The players have made a grave mistake but they are not bad people. There is a human side to this. I hope people will give them a second chance. I want apologise to the Australian public . We know we have let so many people down. We are truly sorry," he added.
Lehmann however, avoided a question over whether he was responsible, as many pundits have suggested, for the 'in-your-face' style of the Australian team.The coach reiterated that the first he knew of the ball-tampering incident was when he saw it on the big screen at Newlands, and said he was confident it was a one-off incident and had not been part of the team's playing culture in the past.
"The first Patrick Wiercioch Jersey I saw of it was on that screen, http://www.footballeaglesofficial.com/WOMENS_YOUTH_CHRIS_LONG_JERSEY.html I got straight on the walky-talky and said something. There were a couple of expletives in there. Then I spoke to the players at tea time and said we would deal with it at the end of play, which happened through the process.
"I am confident it is an isolated issue and a grave mistake. It's never happened before in speaking to those guys," Lehmann said.Contrary to various media reports, Lehmann said the trio of players Alex Anzalone Authentic Jersey had the backing of the entire team, despite their actions.
"When you lose three http://www.officialpatriotsfootballproshop.com/SUPER-BOWL-TEDY-BRUSCHI-JERSEY men in your team, who obviously made a mistake, that hurts all of us. Saying goodbye to them is difficult."The whole group is upset and we understand the enormity of it and the public perception. We have to try and win the fans back over and play the best cricket we can.
"If we take a leaf out of someone like New Zealand... we push the boundaries on the Authentic Michael Wilhoite Jersey ground, so we need to make sure we are respecting the game and its traditions."Lehmann also backed Smith to resume his international career when he had served his 12-month suspension.
"He is going to come back a better person, there is no doubt about that. To see the hurt in him over the last three or four days, you just feel for him."Smith and Warner were banned for a year each while Bancroft was banished for nine months. Lehmann on the other hand, was given a clean chit to continue his role as head coach of the Australian cricket team. wholesale jerseys from china cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys from china wholesale jerseys cheap jerseys
