Usman Khawaja supports Australian coach Justin Langer with Ashes
Usman Khawaja supports Australian coach Justin Langer with Ashes: Former Test player Usman Khawaja has backed Justin Langer to continue as Australia’s head coach with ashes and urged players to stop undermining him through the media.
Langer’s position has been in the spotlight following numerous media reports that the players are tired of his tense coaching style.
Khawaja, who famously clashed with Langer in the Amazon Prime docu-series “The Test”, said Western Australia deserved more administrative time.
“You deserve the opportunity to coach Australia in the T20 World Cup, you deserve the opportunity to coach Australia in the Ashes,” Queensland captain Khawaja said on his YouTube channel.
“If after all that, things aren’t going well … that’s when you look at things and think ‘Okay, maybe we need to change something?’
Khawaja said he was disappointed with the players who appeared to be submitting complaints to the media rather than keeping issues in the house.
“How do you think JL (Langer) feels? Maybe he feels like the guys in the team are stabbing him in the back. And it looks like that,” Khawaja said.
“It looks really bad and it’s something the team needs to fix with ASAP.”
Australian captain Tim Paine said he and other senior players had “strong” talks with Langer to clarify the spirit last week.
Khawaja had a heated conversation with Langer during the 2018 trip to the United Arab Emirates as he was included in “The Test”.
News analysts have identified Khawaja as a victim of the Langer attack, linking the UAE episode with the batsman’s departure from the Australian team two years ago.
Khawaja, who has a batting score of more than 40 in his 44 Tests, said his relationship with Langer had nothing to do with his non-selection.
“My relationship with Justin Langer is very good. To be honest, I’m still talking to him, I still text him here and there, and that’s because we respect each other so much,” he said.https://apnipasandco.com/pak-vs-wi/
