Australia open to splitting coaching role after Langer exit


Justice Australia is open to unyoking the head trainer’s part for its men’s platoon following Justin Langer’s exit, CA president Lachie Henderson said on Monday, conceding it was trying for one person to trainer across formats.

Langer, who guided Australia to their demoiselle Twenty20 World Cup in November and a 4-0 Ashes triumph against England latterly, rejected a short- term extension and abnegated this month.
Andrew McDonald has been appointed on an interim base ahead of the platoon’s stint of Pakistan coming month and is considered a front- runner for a endless part.

“ I suppose it’s a veritably time- consuming part for one existent and perhaps a more distributed system of coaching is the way of the future,” Henderson told ABC radio when asked if CA would consider separate red and white ball trainers.

“ We’re going for a single head trainer to be installed in the near future. How it plays out after that will depend a bit on that appointment, their vacuity and how that works across all forms of the game in what is going to be a really busy 12 to 18 months.

“ It may be that person isn’t available for every single stint around the world over the coming 18 months,” the CA chief said.

Former each- rounder Shane Watson has also advised unyoking the trainer’s part.

“ There’s a good chance they will resolve the places as I do not suppose it’s sustainable that everyone does every single format for a long period of time,” Watson told the International Cricket Council’s show’The ICC Review’.

“ There’s always going to be collapse and fatigue in a platoon terrain, especially now with Covid and bubbles and analogous situations that are around,” Watson added.
