Australia’s Head Coach Justin Langer stated that the Australian cricket team is “in a better place” following a meeting with the senior players and the Cricket Australia officials.
Justin Langer has been subjected to a lot of criticism after Australia’s consecutive white-ball series defeats to West Indies and Bangladesh. There were reports about a rift between the players and the coach. This sparked an emergency meeting among Justin Langer, Cricket Australia’s chairman Earl Eddings, CEO Nick Hockley, Test captain Tim Paine, white-ball captain Aaron Finch, and vice-captain Pat Cummins.
“I look back at 1993, 1998, and 2001 when I was dropped from the Australian team. I was devastated when they happened and thought they were amongst the worst times in my life. Yet I look back on them now and realize that those experiences, as gutting as they were at the time, made me stronger and better as a player,” said Justin Langer to the West Australian newspaper.
When you are losing, pin-pointing starts: Justin Langer
Justin Langer admitted that the situation at the moment is difficult, but he is confident to become a better coach. He added that the Australian team is in a better place now after the meeting. Langer said,
“The situation at the moment is very tough but I am confident that I will become a better coach from it. We all got a lot off our chest. I think we are all in a better place now.”
“When you win, everyone is happy and gets on with things but when you are losing, that is when the finger-pointing starts, and people look for excuses. We have had a rough trot in recent times but we retained the Ashes only a little while ago and were ranked No.1 in Test and T20 cricket not that long ago. Get back to winning and you won’t hear about anything else,” he concluded.
