sydney: Brisbane Heat coach Darren Lehmann was officially reprimanded and slapped with a suspended fine by cricket officials after questioning the bowling action of West Indian Marlon Samuels. Cricket Australia said Lehmann was convicted of breaching the Code of Behaviour with remarks in a media interview after the Heat's loss to the Melbourne Renegades in Australia's Twenty20 Big Bash League on Saturday night. "At a hearing, Commissioner John Price found Lehmann guilty of breaching Rule nine: Detrimental Public Comment," the governing body said. "Lehmann received an official reprimand and a Aus$3,000 fine suspended for two years." "If he is deemed legal, I'm totally understanding of that. But from my point of view, from 20 years' cricket, I have got a problem with 120kmh off no steps," Lehmann said.
