WI vs AUS: Tim Paine denies Australian team are unhappy with Justin Langer’s coaching style, says, ‘We are all 100 per cent behind him’- Australia skipper Tim Paine has backed head coach Justin Langer weeks after reports surfaced that some of the players are not happy with his coaching sytle.
Talking about the series review which was held after the defeat against India, Paine said: “We are all 100 per cent behind Justin Langer and the job he is doing. We had a team review at the end of the Indian series, which is a pretty common factor in professional sports. From Justin to our last player, everyone will get feedback they can improve on.”
“We will go to the Gold Coast in a couple of weeks to delve a bit deeper into that… we are trying to create an environment to give people feedback. We obviously did not play as well as we (would have) liked against India and we all want to improve, from Justin down,” he added.
