Justin Langer, the former opening batsman for Australia, has been appointed the head coach of the Australian Cricket Team by Cricket Australia.
Langer gets this job after Darren Lehmann quit from his position after the ball-tampering saga and his main focus is on trying to better the ethics, the team culture, and image of the Australian team among the general public.
In a media conference, Langer was quoted saying that, “The expectations are high in the Australian cricket team. We have got to make sure the behaviours are good. If we do that, I think the outcomes will look after themselves, I think one of the things that’s really important is that we keep looking to earn respect. To me, respect is worth more than all the gold in the world.”
Meanwhile, the Australian Cricket Community has accepted Justin Langer as the head coach of their team with open arms. Many former Australian cricketers took to Twitter to congratulate him and wished him luck.
