CM – Langer wants to remain Australia’s coach despite criticism


Injured by the criticism that followed him since an injury-ridden India eclipsed Australia earlier this year, coach Justin Langer said most of it confused him.

In January this year, Australia lost the Home test series 1-2 against a weak India, which celebrated a heroic comeback under the leadership of Ajinkya Rahane after losing the opening game in Adelaide.

The visiting team fought against the absence of star batsman and regular skipper Virat Kohli along with a number of injuries to triumph in the series. Langer and Australia Test Skipper Tim Paine were heavily criticized for tactically failing a disabled rival.

« Some of the things I’ve read were actually a bit confusing. If I’m being completely honest, it has some really hurt me. The feedback I’ve received for three years has been overwhelmingly positive for the role I’ve played as a coach, « Langer said before the T20 series against West Indies kicked off here on Saturday / p>

Australia is currently touring the West Indies for a T20 series with five games and three ODIs. Langer admitted that he didn’t like to lose to India, but he was committed to his job.

« If the board of directors, the CEO and the high-performing manager believe that I’m the right person to help us move forward, absolutely. » I absolutely love my job, « he said.

 » I didn’t like to lose to India in the fantastic series, nobody likes to lose. I’m absolutely committed, I love my job, I love the Australian cricket team, me love the players and I love Australian cricket.

« They are the things I value most in my life. Hopefully I’ve done a really good job over the past three years, that was the feedback. May it go on for a long time. « Langer was named Australian head coach in 2018 on a four-year contract, replacing Darren Lehmann.

The former left-handed opening player refused to consider himself a » great coach « and insisted that he be Team remains focused on doing well in this year’s ICC World T20 in the UAE and the Ashes home series against England from December onwards.

« We’re not a great team yet and that’s what we’re all aiming for. The way I want to be a great coach, « he said.

 » I’m not a great coach yet, I strive to be a great coach. I am working towards it and I hope all the players do the same, « added the 50-year-old.
