Darren Lehmann has extended his contact as Australia’s head coach until 2019 to cover the World Cup and the Ashes series in England that year, the country’s cricket board (CA) said on Monday.
The 46-year-old former left-handed batsman took on the role on the eve of the 2013 Ashes and despite losing 3-0 in England, he went on to guide the team to series wins over South Africa, England, India, New Zealand and West Indies.
He also won the 2015 World Cup on home soil with Australia, who currently top the ICC rankings in both test and one-day international cricket.
Lehmann’s contract was due to expire in June 2017.
