Langer’s future as coach still unclear after marathon Cricket Australia board meeting

Cricket Australia (CA) says it will hold “confidential discussions” with Justin Langer about his future as national men’s coach following a marathon board meeting on Friday.

Speculation had grown CA would make an announcement about whether Langer would continue in the role following the meeting in Melbourne.

But CA chief executive Nock Hockley told reporters his organisation would hold further talks with Langer before a decision would be announced publicly.

“Cricket Australia can confirm that the CA board met today and part of that meeting involved significant discussions about men’s head coach Justin Langer’s contract,” Hockley read from a statement.

“We will now enter into confidential discussions with Justin and the outcome will be announced as soon as possible.

“We have no further comment until then.”

Langer recently coached the men’s team to a 4-0 Ashes series victory and a T20 World Cup triumph.

Rumours of player dissatisfaction with Langer’s coaching style have surrounded the squad for much of the past 12 months.
