More than the Australians, the Englishmen have felt amused upon the departure of Justin Langer, who many former cricketers believe couldn’t have done a better job in the last four years.
Now former captain Michael Vaughan has laid out an interesting revelation about Australian skipper. According to Vaughan, Cummins had a chat with interim coach Andrew McDonald about the next coach they want for Australia.
Vaughan revealed during FoxCricket’s Follow-on podcast that the conversation between Cummins and Mcdonald was overheard by few British journalist and that the future of Langer was apparent from the conversation.
“I know from close contacts in the England journalistic world that Pat Cummins … and Andrew McDonald were caught having conversations in a pub in Hobart. That conversation was heard by two or three British journalists.” said Vaughan.
Vaughan believes that discussion on sensitive topics should not happen in public domain where they can be heard.
“My advice to Pat Cummins would be, if you’re going to have strong conversations about the potential removal of your Australian cricket coach, who was in position at the time, don’t do it at a pub. Do not do it in a public domain where you may get heard.”
It could be said that Langer was made to resign as Cricket Australia did not wanted to offer him a long-term contract which is what Langer wanted.
“When you’re an international captain, just be careful where you have that conversation.” Vaughan said.
