After a considerable break from international cricket, Australia are set to train together ahead of their tour to West Indies. This marks a very busy international schedule for them including the Ashes at home. The first and foremost thing for the team would be to sort out the difference between the players and the coach Justin Langer.
If the reports are to be believed, players are disappointed with Langer’s style of coaching. Langer himself has acknowledged before and termed it as a wake up call for him. the Aussie captain, Tim Paine, meanwhile, has said that the team is behind Justin Langer and understand the way he has handled the side during tough times.
He cleared that Australia are keen on improving and evolving going forward and Langer is a part of the plans. “What I would say is I know I speak for all of our players (when I say) that JL has done a bloody good job in a really difficult time. We all now feel as a team we want to evolve and improve, and JL is a part of that,” he said according to Cricbuzz.
Moreover, Paine also admitted that Australia didn’t play well in the Test series against India and the team, along with Langer, will look to improve. “It is not him by himself or us by ourselves…we are all 100 per cent behind JL and the job he is doing. We have a team review at the end of the Indian series which is a pretty common factor in professional sports…from Justin to our last player, everyone will get feedback they can improve on,” the Aussie skipper added.
