While the writing was on the wall, not because of Langer’s performance but due to lack of support from the senior Australian pros, Langer’s resignation has sparked an intense uproar in the Cricket Australia community.

Speaking on his Youtube Channel, former leg-spinner Brad Hogg has torn apart Cricket Australia. Hogg said, “Cricket Australia have been a bunch of Flogs with the way they have treated Justin Langer.”

Hogg spoke about Langer’s achievement of maiden T20 WC win and 4 -0 Ashes demolition and recalls how the former coach helped him multiple times in his career.

“Justin Langer is a person who has saved my career a number of times while he was a team mate but also when he was the coach of the Perth Scorchers when he gave me a number of opportunities which led me to play for Australia again when I thought I was done and dusted.” Hogg said

It is a debacle, it is a disgrace how Cricket Australia have treated him : Brad Hogg

Hogg did not minced his words and lambasted Cricket Australia on how they handled the exit of Langer. CA confirmed that Langer was offered a ‘short-term’ deal which the coach did not accepted and instead offered his resignation from immediate effect.

“But the way Cricket Australia have treated him, it is a debacle, it is a disgrace. To leave a legend of the game who has offered so much to Australian Cricket hanging after a successful Ashes campaign and a T20 World Cup victory with speculation left, right and center all over the world is just not good enough”

The potential candidates for replacing Justin Langer are still unclear and the assistant coach Andrew McDonald will now lead the coaching for the time being. Australia will host Sri Lanka for the 5 T20 match series from 11th of February.
