EbeneNews – AU – ‘I didn’t like it at all’ – Justin Langer unhappy with two Australian teams for touring NZ and South Africa in 2021


    Australian head coach Justin Langer has spoken candidly about his aversion to the concept of two different national teams playing at the same time, as will likely be the case when the T20 team tour New Zealand -Zeeland at the same time as a test team is due to tour South Africa in February and March next year

    Quarantined at his Perth home after already spending two weeks in quarantine at the new Adelaide Oval hotel after returning from the White Balloon tour in the UK, Langer said he didn’t like the concept of the national team diluted by taking the field in different parts of the world at the same time

    He also expressed concerns about how such a move, with teams of around 18 players needed for each mission, would drastically reduce the quality of players exposed in the back-end of the ongoing Sheffield Shield competition. , who just saw his first two-game finish in Adelaide on Tuesday Langer said Cricket Australia president Earl Eddings and interim general manager Nick Hockley were well aware of his point, which he raised with recognition of the unique challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic

    « Not just from a coach’s point of view, but also from someone who is passionate about the point of view of Australian cricket, my personal opinion, and the chairman knows it, the CEO knows it very clearly, is that I didn’t like it at all, « Langer told SEN Radio » I never want to have two Australian teams in one place, that’s my personal opinion This year, with what’s going on with Covid, I understand that there are complexities

    « We are one country, right? We are not two countries, and the only sport The other thing is if you have two Australian cricket teams, that means if we take 18 players in New Zealand and 18 players in South Africa, that makes 36 players out of the back side of the Sheffield Shield competition, and that’s before any injury inevitably happen So you take all of your best players out of the back half of the Shield competition, which we’ve always said is the best domestic competition in the world

    « So that’s the kind of thing that worries me about it, but it’s a really weird season. We’ve seen it in the AFL, we’ve seen it in the NRL, but I didn’t would certainly never wish this to be a permanent fixture « 

    The strength of the Shield had been on display in Adelaide in two voluntary contests decided in the last hour of the fourth day, under conditions allowing greater use of bowling throwers on a pair of deteriorating and turning surfaces Langer was excited about this, the overall exploits of Michael Neser and Ashton Agar, each marking a century and carrying a five wicket transport in the same match, as well as the top notch races scored by Jake Weatherald of South Australia

    « We have spoken more privately than publicly at the moment about our need in all its forms to find versatile tools. In England, when we beat England recently [in the ODI series], we changed the structure of our one-day squad, « said Langer » Our one-day squad hasn’t been great in the last four or five years since we won the World Cup [in 2015], and this what we did was talk about playing more versatile players to have more bowling options

    « We had Mitch Marsh, Marcus Stoinis and Glenn Maxwell, and it worked really well and looked and felt good on game day One of the areas we talked about needs to improve There is has three areas, and it was nice to see him break out in domestic cricket One is to continue to develop versatile tools Michael Neser, one hundred and five for, he’s a good cricketer, I wouldn’t be surprised that he will soon have an opportunity with the Australian cricket team He’s been on a lot of tours but damn he keeps hitting hard It was great to see Ashton Agar [get] five percent so that’s a domain

    « We talked about opening or top three hitters It was great to see Jake Weatherald, for example, score a hundred at the top, put his name at the top [Cameron] Bancroft and [Sam] Whiteman pitched [ 106] the opening of the stick, which was good, and the other most important area is our spin bowling stocks Geez it was great watching the bowling legspin, great to watch Mitch Swepson bowled with forty overs in the second inning, [Lloyd] Pope got five for in the first legspin bowling, Marnus Labuschagne played the legspin yesterday; legspin bowling is exciting for us in Australian cricket «
