Outstanding leadership for younger players

"Redbacks retain Lehmann as captain" reports ABC local news.

The report continues:

South Australian Cricket Association chairman of selectors, Paul Nobes, said Lehmann had provided outstanding leadership for the Redbacks' younger players. "We believe that Darren is the right person to take us forward, particularly with the very high expectations we have of this playing group," he said in a statement."He is also the right person to lead our blend of more experienced cricketers and our young up-and-coming cricketers."

Lehmann is currently playing county cricket in England for Yorkshire, where he was recently reprimanded for making an obscene gesture during a Twenty20 game against local rivals Lancashire.

Is this the kind of leadership he is expected to provide to the younger players?
