SYDNEY (AP):

Australia cricket coach Darren Lehmann has been hospitalised with deep vein thrombosis after falling ill during his team's one-day international against India yesterday.

Lehmann, who battled the illness as a player in 2008, complained of swelling in his calves prior to the match and was taken to a radiology clinic during the second innings at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

Cricket Australia chief medical officer John Orchard said Lehmann would miss the upcoming Twenty20 series against India while receiving treatment, but indicated he was not seriously ill.

Orchard said, "It's a condition that's got a very good outcome if you get it early, which we have. One of the factors associated with it is that it's unwise to fly until you've stabilised the condition, so he will be absent from the Australian team camp for a short period."
