Former Australian coach Justin Langer believes ‘chop and change’ is on the side leading up to the T20 International Cricket Championship Globalism The trophy at home wasn’t the right way forward for such a big event, and it could have played a huge role in Aaron Finch’s early exit.
Australia, who were the defending champions, couldn’t get past the Super 12 stage, with the biggest blow coming from their New Zealand rival who crushed them 89 times in the opening group match on October 22.
Langer, who has been coach of Australia for a period, told sen.com.au.
Despite two major achievements to be bragged about, Langer has backed his players due to his alleged partial management of the team and senior players are said to be unhappy with his coaching style. Australia’s inaugural player was offered a six-month contract renewal until the T20 World Cup, but the legendary cricketer opted to leave.
Langer assistant coach Andrew MacDonald took charge and has since oversaw a historic Test victory in Australia and the home T20 World Cup disaster.
Langer felt that for a team to tap into a world championship, things had to go right.
“Yes, it should go well,” Langer said at breakfast at SEN WA. “I said before the start of this streak, like winning the AFC Champions League final or the NRL Grand Final, in the World Cup, everything has to go well and it hasn’t been all right for Australia, unfortunately. They will get injured (the team). ) with disappointment.
“There was a lot of discussion about the lead-up to the race, and from afar it looked like the lead-up to summer was supposed to be a lot of T20 cricket and getting into the Tour. There was a bit of chopping and tweaking in the series, but they’re going to be disappointed, neither Doubt about it. They will have to throw themselves out and prepare for the next stage.”
Langer felt it was a great opportunity for the likes of young Cameron Green and Mitchell Marsh to advance and be respected.
“How I see it now is another big opportunity for Cameron Green and another big opportunity for Mitch Marsh, all the guys,” Langer stated. “They are both devastating players, Glenn (Maxwell) is not there (due to a broken leg), they will have to go up the field (too). He (Maxwell) is their best player, he brings energy to the group, he also brings that non-gradual option. The Australians have to think a bit, it’s a huge opportunity for these other players (in the next series against England at home).”
