Former Australia batsman Darren Lehmann was reprimanded by Yorkshire on Saturday for making â€œan obscene gestureâ€ in a Twenty20 match against local rivals Lancashire. The incident occurred immediately after the 36-year-old Lehmann had caught Lancashire batsman Paul Horton in Fridayâ€™s game.
â€œYorkshire do not condone this behaviour and have met Darrento discuss the matter,â€ the chief executive Stewart Regan told the clubâ€™s Web site. â€œDarren apologises for his behaviour which was a spur of the moment reaction after being barracked by the Lancashire fans. The club have dealt with the matter internally and are confident it will not happen again,â€ he added.
Regan said his club had already apologised to Lancashire. â€œYorkshire have contacted Lancashire and apologised to the committee, players and fans for this incident which was a black mark on an otherwise enjoyable evening,â€ he told. Yorkshire won the game by 15 runs. Lehmann played 27 Tests and 117 One-day Internationals for Australia.
