Australia Players Unhappy with Coach Langer’s Methods: Report
Australia coach Justin Langer has come under the scanner for his stubborn ways.
Justin Langer, who is in the final year of his contract as Australian head coach, faces pressure to mend his ways according to an end-of-season review of players and support staff, claimed a report in the Sydney Morning Herald.
Langer was appointed as coach in 2018 following the ball-tampering scandal in South Africa and he has since then lost two home series to India, the latest earlier this year that saw his place get questioned.
"A robust end-of-season review of players and support staff shows Justin Langer needs to change his ways, as players move to take greater control of the dressing room heading into the final year of the coach's contract," said a in the Sydney Morning Herald.
Test captain Tim Paine, his deputy Pat Cummins and limited-overs skipper Aaron Finch will be presented with the report by leadership consultant Tim Ford when they meet next week.
"This is effectively identical to the process undertaken before the last World Cup and the 2019 Ashes where the team performed strongly," CA's national teams boss Ben Oliver in a statement to SMH and The Age.
"It's part of our ongoing commitment to on- and off-field improvement and we expect it will have a similar benefit in the team's preparation for the upcoming T20 World Cup and home Ashes.’’ the chief remarked.
"Tim is again assisting us as he has in the past with gathering feedback and insights from players and staff. It's always a thought-provoking and energising process which we get great value from." he told the publication.
