Justin Langer quits as Australian cricket coach

Justin Langer has quit as coach of Australia’s men’s cricket team effectively immediately, after a meeting with Cricket Australia heavyweights in Melbourne on Friday night.

Langer took control of the long-running saga by using his own management company, DSEG, to announce that he was out.

In a statement posted to Twitter on Saturday morning, the company said: “DSEG confirms that our client Justin Langer has this morning tendered his resignation as coach of the Australian men’s cricket team.

“The resignation follows a meeting with Cricket Australia last evening. The resignation is effective immediately.”

It comes after a successful summer where Langer led the Aussies to their maiden T20 World Cup victory and a comprehensive 4-0 Ashes triumph.

But it also comes as no surprise after a year of reports of disharmony within the team and after Test captain Pat Cummins repeatedly refused to publicly endorse a contract extension for the coach.
