Justin langer Resigns Melbourne: In the two days since the cricketing world, there have been reports of two major resignations. Ashley Giles, managing director of England cricket, and then head coach Chris Silverwood have resigned following a humiliating Ashes defeat to Australia. Considering the overall performance of the England team in 2021, it was not very shocking. But the Australian team that beat England 4-0. Earlier, the coach of the team that won the T20 World Cup resigned.
The head coach of the Australian cricket team Justin Langer resigns from the post. Under Langer’s guidance, Australia would have won the Ashes 4-0. He resigned after a meeting with Cricket Australia officials. Langer became Australia’s head coach in 2018 after a ball tampering scandal in South Africa. Australia also won the T20 World Cup for the first time in November last year. Under Langer’s tutelage, Australia won 15 of the 27 Tests they played.
Langer, 51, had a lengthy meeting to extend his contract with Cricket Australia. But there was no way out of this meeting. The meeting continued until a final decision was made, said Nick Hawley, CEO of the board. Langer then announced his resignation. Manager James Henderson then said that Langer had retired as a player after the 5-0 Ashes victory. He is now resigning as coach after winning the T20 World Cup and Ashes series. One cannot forget the circumstances under which he accepted the post in 2018.
When Langer first toured England as a coach, Australia lost 5-0 in a five-match ODI series. The same year, India lost its first Test at home. The team did well in the 2019 World Cup and advanced to the semifinals. In 2020-21, Australia once again lost to India in a Test series. Therefore, question marks began to be presented on the anchor. Former Australia captain Ricky Ponting called Australia the most frustrating day for cricket.
