CA deny report on "heated" Langer meeting

Cricket Australia have moved to dismiss "a number of inaccuracies" in a story published around the future of men's Head Coach Justin Langer.


Fox Sports Tom Morris reported that Langer had been asked to reapply for his role and the meeting became heated and fiery during the discussion with CEO Nick Hockley and EGM of High Performance and National Teams Ben Oliver.


CA's statement read: “While we do not comment on confidential conversations, we felt on this occasion it was important to correct the record.


“Among other false claims, we reject outright the assertion that the meeting was fiery or heated and that Justin was asked to reapply for his job.


“Justin has always been contracted as Head Coach through to the middle of this year and we have consistently maintained that discussions around the future of the role would commence following the conclusion of the men’s Ashes series.


“Friday’s meeting was the first time that we had the opportunity to meet together in person, reflect on the team’s success and discuss the road ahead.


“We will continue with this process and make an announcement once it is complete.”
