Langer hands in resignation


Justin Langer has resigned as coach of the Australian men's cricket team effective immediately.


Langer's management company DSEG Worldwide confirmed the resignation.


"DSEG confirms that our client Justin Langer has this morning tendered his resignation as coach of the Australian mens cricket team. The resignation follows a meeting with Cricket Australia last evening. The resignation is effective immediately."


Managing Director of DSEG Worldwide James Henderson also posted on social media.


"As a player Justin retired on top after a 5-0 Ashes whitewash. Today, despite the views of a faceless few, he finishes his time as Australian cricket coach winning the T20 World Cup and the Ashes. Lest we forget what JL took over in 2018."


Langer's contract was due to expire in June with negotiations well underway.


The CA board met on Friday to discuss Langer's future and after a meeting on Friday evening with Langer and management he handed in his resignation.
