The England cricketer Stewart Broad says he's received an apology from Darren Lehmann after the Australian accused him of "blatant cheating" during the Ashes series and told Australian radio listeners to send him home from the return Ashes series this summer in tears.

Broad said on his Twitter account he's spoken to Lehmann who said his comments were made in jest and he would learn from the controversy.

Lehmann accused Broad of cheating for not walking during the first test of the series in Nottingham and he's urged urged Australian fans to target the England pace bowler when he plays in the return series in Australia this summer.

Lehmann was fined 20 percent of his match fee for the comments.
