New Delhi, October 31 (IANS) Cricket Australia were taken aback after Australian men’s team coach Justin Langer mentioned the name of Adam Goodes, a former Australian football player leading, to the media as one of the people the Cricket Council and team management can consult on possible ways to speak out against racism through messages on the pitch during the Indian tour of Australia
Langer also mentioned the name of journalist Stan Grant, who wrote and partially narrated “The Australian Dream,” a film that explores the racism suffered by Goodes during his playing years.
A report from the Sydney Morning Herald stated: « CA is empathetic, the couple became the subject of headlines He said he intended to address them in private and didn’t want the stress or unnecessary burden CA insiders were also surprised that Langer publicly referred to Goodes and Grant «
Australian TV channel Tracey Holmes, who is Grant’s wife, also slammed Langer for mentioning Goodes’s name in the media without contacting the former Australian footballer
« Is this story a little strange? » Looks like Adam Goodes is being asked to take on the Australian cricket team to see if he can convince them whether or not to take a stand against racism, ”Holmes wrote on Twitter.
« These stories are well documented. It would be great if Justin called Adam, but so far he’s gotten a mile of publicity for this ‘idea’ without talking to him, » she added.
At the same time, on Friday evening, Cricket Australia held a virtual meeting with Australia’s limited-goal leaders – skipper Aaron Finch, pace thrower Pat Cummins and Gavin Dovey to discuss the matter
