Chappell supports Cummins amid row calling Ponting, Hayden, Johnson, Warne and Gilchrist are PR machine of Langer!!


Cricket Australia is being slammed for the resignation of head coach Langer. Former Australian captain Ian Chappell calls Ricky Ponting, Shane Warne, Mitchell Johnson, Matthew Hayden, and Adam Gilchrist as ‘PR Machine’ for Justin Langer.

Chappell has come out in support of the players especially Cummins who was not convinced with the intense coaching methods of the former coach

“It is easy to lambast Cricket Australia and players. Cummins deserves credit for being honest. Justin Langer’s PR machine has been at work,” he told the Wide World of Sports this week

“Captain has got to get the coach that he gets on with and works well with,” he added.

Under Langer, Australia won the ICC T20 World Cup and the Ashes.
