    The Fourth Reich: Justin Langer Appointed Australian Head Coach

    https://www.cricketaustralia.com.au/...ach/2018-05-03

    Cricket Australia (CA) has today announced Justin Langer as the new Bupa Support Team Head Coach of the Australian Men’s Cricket Team.

    Langer will coach Australia in all three formats of the game and will commence in the role on 22 May, for a four-year term taking in two Ashes Series, a World Cup and World T20 tournament.

    The 47-year-old enjoyed a decorated playing career, representing Australia in 105 Test matches and eight ODI matches.

    In Test cricket, he scored more than 7,500 runs – including 23 centuries – and was an integral member of the Australian men’s team during one of the most successful eras of all time.

    His playing career spanned almost 20 years, in which he played 360 first-class matches and scored more than 28,000 first class runs.
    Details on how this is a culture change to come.

    This video reminds me of that experience.

    It's good that we picked someone who responds well to adversity and doesn't act like a baby

    You should have gotten Gillespie.
    He (Alastair Cook) and his family are very much the sort of people we want the England captain and his family to be

    Could have easily been the other way around depending on luck with selection timing. He was inches away from a spot in the ODI team pre-2003 world cup but was beaten out by Jimmy Maher who made a 100 in a warm-up game (and ran Langer out for 40 odd in the same innings . . .). Was lucky to get his Test spot back in 2001 too after Slats was dropped for disciplinary reasons, he may have never got back in otherwise.

    Expect the Australian team to end up looking something like this

    1. S Marsh
    2. Philippe
    3. Bosisto
    4. M Marsh
    5. Cartwright
    6. Turner
    7. Whiteman
    8. Agar
    9. NCN
    10. Richardson
    11. Behrendorff

    Kelly/Mackin/Paris/some random plebs out of Perth grade cricket as seam bowling injury cover.

    He actually referred to Warner as a "really good young bloke". He turns 32 in October!

    His quotes are insufferable but unexpected. Think it's a really bad appointment from a culture perspective which is more important at this point in time than actual performance, but time will tell.

    There was a bit of a perception, though, that he was a bit too 'dour' for ODIs wasn't there? Despite the fact he was quite attacking.

    Would've walked into all other sides at the time...except for maybe India.

    perceptions are often wrong. IMO he probably would have been not quite as good at ODIs as he was at Tests but not by much.

    He would have easily done as well or better than guys like Katich or Martyn who had more extended runs in the ODI side. Selection during that period of Australian cricket had a big element of luck to it, if you performed in the right match, at the right time, you could own a spot for years and be very hard to get rid of while equally good players languished in domestic cricket.
