Out-of-favour opener Usman Khawaja. He clashed with Justin Langer amid Australia’s visit to UAE in 2018. It has supported the embattled coach to proceed within the position. Although the Ashes encouraged the players to stop undermining him.
The Australian coach’s position has come under overwhelming investigation. Since last week amid dressing room spills around his escalated. Also, mood swings have not gone down well with the players.
But Khawaja had a heated trade with Langer in 2018. Which was captured within the docu-series ‘The Test’, supported the coach. It is saying the players need to raise their performance. Rather than expressing their grievances through the media.
“He probably feels like the guys in the team are stabbing him in the back, and that’s what it looks like, Khawaja said.
“That’s why it’s so disappointing. It’s really a very bad look. This can be something the group has to sort out ASAP.”
“Let’s put it into perspective here. It’s not always 100 percent the coach’s fault. The guys aren’t performing, the players have to take onus too at some stage, he also said.
Relations between Langer and his players were exacerbated. Cricket Australia holding emergency talks. It is between senior officials and the cricketers. Moreover, to try and guide them ahead of the T20 World Cup and Ashes.
It is understood that an agreement had come for everybody. To work together, at least until Justin Langer’s contract expires next year.
Khawaja supported his coach despite the recognition. He was dropped from the team because of his feud with Langer.
Meanwhile, Khawaja too evaluated the Indian attack. As the leading in the world and called Mohammed Shami. The most underrated bowler.
