"To cricket fans in Australia and all over the world: I am now on my way back to Sydney", the batsman said.

"As I've stated before, I had no prior knowledge of the (ball-tampering) incident and do not condone the incident at all, but good people can make mistakes", Lehmann said, initially reading from a prepared statement.
