Kangaroos Test batsman Usman Khawaja has urged Australian captain Pat Cummins to publicly explain the circumstances surrounding the resignation of national coach Justin Langer. Since Langer’s departure as head coach, it is being said that he has left his position because of player power. For this, many great cricketers of the Australian team are pointing fingers at the current Test captain Pat Cummins and other senior members of the Australian team.
Usman Khawaja has managed to make a comeback to the Test side this summer after an absence of more than two years. Khawaja has said about Langer that he is completely unaware of that process. “I really didn’t know what was going on. I wasn’t part of the process. I’ve only been back in the team a few months ago. I’ve been a little bit out of it,” he said. Although the players had to bear the brunt of Langer’s ouster, Khawaja has asked Test captain Cummins and ODI captain Aaron Finch to publicly brief him about the matter.
Left-handed batsman Khawaja said, “Obviously a lot of former players are talking about the game group. I think at some point, one of the captains might have been Finchy (Aaron Finch) or Patty (Pat Cummins). Gotta stand up and answer a few questions to get rid of all the speculation and just put an end to it. I understand that everyone has their own opinion, but I also know that everyone just has to play the game. care for.”
