Damien William Fleming is an Australian cricket commentator and former cricketer who played for the Australian national cricket team and domestic cricket for Victoria. He played in 20 Tests and 88 ODIs from 1994 to 2001 and was an important part of the all-conquering Australian teams under Steve Waugh and Mark Taylor.
A prolific run-scorer at domestic level in Australia and England, Darren Lehmann might have played more Test cricket but for the abundance of talented batsmen in Australia in the 1990s and early 2000s. As a stocky, free-scoring left-hander, Lehmann was able to treat spectators to an audacious mixture of aggression and deft finesse. Having arrived on the state cricket scene as a 17-year-old, Lehmann had played more first-class games and scored more runs than any other Australian before making his Test debut in Bangalore in 1998, although his record was later beaten by Michael Hussey.

Supporting the Chapell Foundation
The Chappell Foundation raises funds to give to those who provide refuge, nourishment and a better future for thousands of young Australians without a roof over their heads each night.
Help put a roof over young Australians
Australia is one of the greatest countries on earth and yet our rate of youth homelessness is a national crisis.
Each night more than 30,000 people under the age of 25 sleep without shelter.
The Chappell Foundation raises funds to donate to those working on the frontline to end this national crisis.
Ending youth homelessness benefits us all.
A yearly event, the Nudgee College Sports Lunch is a chance to sit among legends and share a meal, all in the name of a good cause. Last year we were joined by Allan Langer and Greg Chappell to share a meal.
