  • According to The Australian, CA is likely to drop the five-candidate list for the top job. Tony Shepherd, John McMurtrie, John Gillam, Lachie Henderson and Peter Varghese are other names on the list.

Langer was appointed as the men’s team coach in 2018 after the Sandpaper Gate which saw David Warner, Steve Smith serving out one-year bans. Australia will next lock horns against Sri Lanka in a five-match T20I series, and then the side is slated to tour Pakistan for a multi-format series.
