    I think Langer will act as though he knew the actual 100 numbers but he has his own metric where he counts international hundreds to be worth 2 domestic ones.

    Thing is, noone trained harder or worked to better themselves as a player than Langer. Squeezed out every last drop of talent. Not many blokes start a Test career with a shot arc roughly between point and gully then put on enough shots mid-career to almost match the tempo of ultra-aggressive blokes like Hayden, Ponting and the rest.

    Bloke had laser focus and he probably really believes it's just a concentration issue or wanting it bad enough with these guys so I'm not too surprised he'd fall hard for the blokes hustling around the nets over uber-talented but wasting their potential types. He was the perennial touring bat for 5 years after being dropped the first time and often dropped at the first sign of trouble himself so I doubt he'd have a huge amount of sympathy for the predicament guys like Maxwell find themselves in either. Me personally, I don't think a guy like him makes for much of a technical coach but he might be a boon for guys who need some tough love like Khawaja.

    Australias batting lineup for the first series I watched, Ashes 98/99

    Taylor
    Slater
    Langer
    M Waugh
    S Waugh
    Ponting/Lehmann
    Healy


    Out of those guy Steve Waugh is the only one to not have a stint as a commentator/selector/coach

    Bit sad actually because he's one bloke I'd love to hear more on television. Wonder why he never went down that road

    Probably because of his work with the Steve Waugh Foundation. I believe one of his kids has a very rare illness

    I wanted to make the "Langer can't understand a cricinfo page" joke yesterday but couldn't find the interview. good to know langer is as dumb as I thought he was

    He'd at least be able to make his fielders understand that they've gotta catch 'em all

    Yeah just thought with every other Tom, Dick and Harry they've selected... might as well throw him in there for good measure haha.

    I certainly wouldn't rule out the possibility of Stoinis the Test cricketer yet, but I get the sense he will need to rely on batting alone. Don't really see his bowling being that effective against world class batsman.
