XtraTime Web Desk: Australia men’s team head coach Darren Lehmann has resigned from his post and said that the fourth Test against South Africa will be his last as the coach of the team.

After watchin the emotional press conferences of Steve Smith and Cameron Bancroft earlier today, Lehmann said now was the time for a new coach of the national side.

The 48-year-old was yesterday cleared of any wrongdoing in the ball-tampering scandal.

The fourth Test at the Wanderers will be his last Test in charge.“Saying goodbye to the players was the toughest thing I’ve ever had to do,” he said.

"Speaking to the players and saying goodbye is the toughest thing I have had to do. It's been happening for a few days and you think you can keep going but the amount of abuse just takes it toll. They made a mistake," Lehmann said.

"This was entirely my decision. I have been speaking to the hierarchy in the last couple of days. Speaking to my family, they've had enough of traveling 300 days," he added.
