Heres Pat Cummins Speaks Out On Justin Langer’s exit
“Since Justin Langer’s resignation as coach of the Australian cricket team, there has been a lot of public discussion. I haven’t made a public comment until today for good reason. Now that Justin has decided to resign and given his own public comments as well as those made by Cricket Australia, I can provide some clarity “He continued.
Cummins went on to say in his statement: “Justin has admitted that his style was intense, and he has apologized to the players and staff for his intensity, which I believe was unnecessary because the players were fine with JL’s intensity. His ferocity was not an issue for the players or the coaching staff. From this solid foundation, we need a new coaching style and skill set to become better Australian players.”
“CA has made a brave decision to transition, given the team’s recent success. This is a serious responsibility for me. It’s something I live and breathe. We also have a responsibility to our coworkers “He continued.
Justin’s contract extension was the result of a thorough review process that considered many factors, including the team’s future needs and the upcoming extensive schedule of fixtures. It included a chance to defend their T20 World Cup title in Australia at the end of this year.
Australia won the T20 World Cup 2021 and then the Ashes under Langer.
