Cricket Australia (CA) said Langer was offered a transient expansion to his agreement, “which tragically he has selected not to acknowledge”; Andrew McDonald, an associate mentor under Langer, has been delegated, interim lead trainer.

Justin Langer has left his post as head trainer of Australia, only weeks after driving his side to Ashes triumph over England.

The 51-year-old has stood firm on his position since being hired in 2018, following the ball-altering scandal in South Africa, with Langer directing Australia to a lady Twenty20 World Cup triumph last November before being in charge for their 4-0 Ashes accomplishment on home soil.

Langer had conversations with Cricket Australia on Friday over his future, ahead of his agreement terminating in June. The previous opening batsman turned down a momentary expansion to remain in the job.

In an assertion, Cricket Australia said: “Cricket Australia has acknowledged men’s group lead trainer Justin Langer’s abdication, which was gotten today. Justin was offered a momentary expansion to his present agreement, which, unfortunately, he has picked not to acknowledge.

“CA might want to say thanks to Justin for his extraordinary leadership since he became Australian men’s team mentor in 2018 and for training the team to the T20 World Cup title last year and the 4-0 Ashes triumph.

“Justin isn’t just a legend of the game yet a remarkable person. The agreement augmentation proposed to Justin was the aftereffect of a careful audit process that assessed many elements, including future necessities of the group and the forthcoming broad timetable of fixtures.

“The expansion was supported by the CA Board and was put to Justin the previous night. It offered the chance to defend the T20 World Cup title in Australia toward the finish of this current year.

Justin informed CA earlier today he was not going to accept the proposition and would leave with immediate impact.”

Andrew McDonald – an associate mentor under Langer – has been delegated interim lead trainer, with true obligations starting with Australia’s impending T20 series against Sri Lanka ongoing month. Australia then, at that point, travel for their first visit through Pakistan in 24 years the following month.

Would Langer Be Able To Mentor England?

Langer’s flight comes the days after Cricket Australia denied media reports that he had been engaged with a “heated meeting “ over his future, while there have been past reports regarding player discontent over his instructing style.

England partner Chris Silverwood was sacked from his job after a tragic 2021, with the interim manager of England men’s cricket Sir Andrew Strauss declining to preclude Langer as a successor.

Strauss said: “We should make a stride back. What are we searching for? Split mentors or one mentor, and what are the necessities in every one of those designs?

“I know him well and on a superficial level he’s done a generally excellent job with that Australian cricket crew, so I wouldn’t preclude him, yet I’m certain there are a lot of others also.”
