The Australian cricket team recently won its T20 World Cup title. The eyes of the team are now on the Ashes series against England and before this series, former Australia World Cup winning captain Michael Clarke has said a big thing. Clarke believes head coach Justin Langer will step down if Australia win the Ashes after clinching the recent T20 World Cup title. Langer was appointed head coach in 2018 following a ball-tampering controversy. Under him, the team won the T20 World Cup title for the first time on Sunday.
“He wanted Australia to be the best team in the world,” Clarke told the Sydney Morning Herald. He wanted us to play cricket that he can be proud of and we have just won the World Cup. Even if we win the Ashes, then he will achieve everything he took this position for and as much as I know Langer, he will not continue as coach for the wrong reasons.
Former captain Clarke, who made Australia the world champion in 2015 under his captaincy, praised opener David Warner’s batting in the T20 World Cup final. Warner played a half-century inning of 53 runs in the final. Warner was also the Player of the Tournament with 289 runs in the tournament. Clarke said, ‘He played a great game throughout the tournament. He still has the guts to play his natural game. I have no doubt that he will play in the Test series with full confidence. This is very important. The best way to gain confidence is to score runs.
