Sydney: Australia coach Darren Lehmann made a journey of more than 3,000 kilometres to present his son, Jake, with his South Australia first-class cap.

The morning after Australia had thrashed Afghanistan by 275 runs in the World Cup in Perth, Lehmann made the long journey to Adelaide.

"It was a very memorable moment," former Australia batsman Lehmann told cricket.com.au.

"He`s done all the hard work and he deserves the opportunity so now it`s up to him to do the rest," added Lehmann of his 22-year-old son.

"I`m very proud and excited for him. He`s got a career ahead and now it`s up to him to make the most of it."
