Cricket Writers on TV: Darren Lehmann's outburst assessed on Sunday
Lehmann's outburst and Test debuts for Kerrigan and Woakes... Paul Allott and co analyse the Ashes.

The hosts sprung a surprise by handing Test debuts to Warwickshire all-rounder Chris Woakes and Lancashire spinner Simon Kerrigan - much to the delight of Shane Watson, who scored ample runs off them on day one en route to a third Test ton.
Steve Smith then came to the fore on day two, notching his first hundred in the five-day arena as Australia declared their first innings on 492-9 - but the story of the Test so far has undoubtedly been Darren Lehmann's verbal assault on Stuart Broad.
Speaking to Australian radio station Triple M, Lehmann accused the England paceman of "blatant cheating" for not walking when he edged to slip in the first Test of the summer, and asked Aussie fans to make Broad "cry and go home" during the return Ashes series this winter.
Paul Allot and his Cricket Writers on TV panel - which will be comprised of Stephen Brenkley (The Independent), Vic Marks (Observer) and Gideon Haigh (The Australian) - will look at Lehmann's outburst, for which he was fined £2,000 by the ICC, on Sunday morning.
The gang will also assess the exploits of Watson, Smith, Woakes and Kerrigan, as well as the rest of the headlines ahead of the final day's play of 2013 Ashes - thought they will no doubt cast their eye over the upcoming T20 and ODI series between England and Australia, too.
