SYDNEY (AP) Australia cricket coach Darren Lehmann has recovered from a bout of deep vein thrombosis and will rejoin his squad in time for Saturday's second limited-overs international against New Zealand in Wellington.

Lehmann spent time in hospital in late January with a recurrence of DVT during Australia's recent home limited-overs international series against India. He had been uncertain when he would be able to join the Australia team in New Zealand, where they are playing three one-day internationals and two test matches.

The 45-year-old Lehmann has now received medical clearance to fly and will join the Australian team which is 1-0 down in the three-match series for the Chappell-Hadlee Trophy after losing Wednesday's first match by 159 runs.
