Justin Langer Involved In Heated Argument With CA Staffer For Posting Bangladesh’s Celebration Video


Australian cricket team head coach Justin Langer reportedly was involved in an heated altercation with a Cricket Australia’s staffer over a video posted on the Cricket Australia (CA) website. The video shows Bangladesh players celebrating their first-ever series win over Australia, last week.

According to ‘The Sydney Morning Herald’, Langer and Australia team manager Gavin Dovey were upset over the video posted on the website In the video, Bangladeshi players were seen singing their team anthem while celebrating their historic triumph over the Aussies in the 3rd T20I of the recently concluded 5-match series.

Hosts Bangladesh have won the five-match T20I series 4-1 against heavyweights Australia, their first-ever win against the Yellow Army in a bilateral series in any format.

Both Coach Langer and Dovey objected to the video as they found it inappropriate for a Cricket Australia-operated website to have posted a Bangladesh team song.

“The clashes, which took place at the team hotel after the series win of the third game, were separate but took place in quick succession. Sources close to the team said the incidents were seen by at least a dozen people and that some players were bewildered and with a sense of unease about what had happened,” Sydney Morning Herald stated.

While coach Langer did not comment on the matter, Dovey stated: “A healthy team environment includes the ability to have honest and frank discussions, whether it be between players, support staff or others within the team environment, which was the case here.”

“There was a difference of opinion, and we agreed to disagree on a particular matter. In hindsight, it was one of those instances which should have taken place in private. I take full ownership of that,” he added.

Australia were reduced to their lowest score and were defeated by 60 runs in the fifth and final T20 International vs Bangladesh. Last month, Australia lost the ODI series 1-4 against West Indies. They have lost their last five T20I series and have won only six out of 21 matches during this period.
