Cricket Australia appoints Justin Langer as new head coach of Australia

Langer named Australian cricket coach

But he jokingly expressed his concern that Langer would work his magic too well ahead of next year's Ashes series in England.

Langer, who has previously worked as an assistant to the team, will take over all three formats of the game and has been signed on a four-year deal which will see Australia through to the World Cup and next home Ashes series.

Langer's appointment was a popular choice among fans and cricket royalty, with social media buzzing in support for the former Test opener.

Langer, 47, had been earmarked as Lehmann's successor when the former coach foreshadowed his tenure would end at the cessation of next year's dual World Cup/Ashes assignment in the UK. He also found success with the Warriors in the JLT One-Day Cup.

Langer opened the door for a return of Smith, Warner and Cameron Bancroft, who was also banned for the tampering incident.

Langer has acknowledged that his early struggles left him feeling insecure about his place in the team and the public still perceive him as a player who became great through dogged graft rather than dazzling natural ability.

Snap's Earnings Fall Short of Expectations
Looking ahead, Spiegel said Snap is focused on optimizing the redesign, based on his team's ongoing experimentation and learning. The daily active users figure also came in below Wall Street's expectations of 194 million.

The newly appointed coach had represented Australia in 105 test matches and eight ODIs, scoring 7,696 test runs, including 23 centuries. "They are great kids and it was such a surprise they made the mistake they did". I love the way he plays his cricket.

"We modify our behaviours a bit so that it's not angry or not over aggressive but we're still aggressive in the mindset that we play with the bat and the ball".

Rebuilding trust in Australia's dressing room, as well as the cricket world, will be crucial, Langer said.

"Has he got areas to get better at?"

"If we can keep mentoring and helping them and they want to meet the standards of the Australian cricket team, then of course they'd be welcomed back".

In the wake of the ball-tampering scandal, The Australian cricket team was in need of a massive shake-up. "I would say, without being in it (at South Africa), camaraderie wasn't as right as it needed to be.

Palestinians should 'accept Trump deal or shut up', says bin Salman
Mohammed Bin Salman , Saudi Arabia's crowned prince, said Palestinians should accept the peace conditions imposed by U.S. The crown prince reportedly made the remarks when speaking with leaders of several Jewish groups while in NY on March 27.

There are some big tournaments coming up", Langer told mediapersons today.

"But ultimately, if I fast forward it, the Indian Test tour in about three or four years' time, to me that's the ultimate".

"I look back on my career, the Mount Everest moment was 2004 when we finally beat India in India".

"We'll learn from what's happened", he said.

His staunch refusal to criticise his players publicly, much less sanction them for on-field misconduct, won their loyalty but grew stale for an Australian public increasingly uncomfortable with the team's image. I like us all to be tight, not just the players but the support staff, Cricket Australia.

"Justin was the clear standout, particularly based on his recent coaching and player development achievements", Stuff.co.nz quoted Cricket Australia chief executive James Sutherland as saying.

Juve scored twice in last five minutes to sink ten-man Inter
Inglese headed in a late consolation goal for Chievo, but they remain two points above the drop zone. Then he added: "It'll take more than one sleepless night to shake that off".
