Australian coach Justin Langer loses his cool over Glenn Maxwell claims

Glenn Maxwell Australian coach Justin Langer loses his cool over Glenn Maxwell claims

This time, he entered the spot-light frame even by not appearing in the scene.

Australia coach Justin Langer has said that he's had "zero knowledge" of Glenn Maxwell being advised by Cricket Australia to skip the county cricket previous year on assurances that he will be selected for the Australia A tour of India. When the reporter put up a question relating some mistruths about Maxwell's exclusion from recent Tests against India, Langer lost his cool.

Langer was appointed the new Australian coach in May, which was after Maxwell was reportedly told to abandon his country plans, so he may not be aware of every detail of the 30-year-old's situation.

Maxwell detailed in a radio interview a year ago how he rejected offers to play domestic cricket in England, believing he would be part of Australia A's tour of India then hopefully earn selection in the ensuing Test series against Pakistan. Later, Justin called the conjectures surrounding Glenn's non-selection in Tests as "careless whispers".

Langer shot down rumours there were other forces at play behind the Victorian batsman being overlooked for the upcoming two-test series against Sri Lanka, echoing the sentiment of chairman of selectors Trevor Hohns.

"I'm not sure what the instruction was or who it came from but players are free to make up their own decisions on what they go and play", Hohns said on Wednesday.

"Glenn is crystal clear from me and the selectors, what he needs to do to get back in the Test team". He is crystal clear", Langer said. "He has shown he is brilliant around the group in white-ball cricket. There's been some reports about personality.

Glenn Maxwell is an important part of Australian set up in limited-overs formats.

"So, I've taken it out of their hands and signed with a County early so at least I can give myself some sort of red-ball cricket and some sort of longer-form experience, because for a player who's played as long as I have I certainly haven't played the amount of first-class cricket as everyone else has".

"Glenn has chosen to go and play county cricket again this year and a lot of that is one-day cricket leading up to the World Cup". Later, when he got neglected for India A tour, Maxwell thought he would get picked for the Pakistan Tests in the UAE.

"Did it happen? You're telling me it did happen - did it happen?" Langer told the journalist.

"To be honest, mate, they say it's got nothing to do with his personality, but I do", Quiney, a former teammate of Maxwell's at Victoria, said on SEN Breakfast. In a press conference, reporters asked head coach Justin Langer if the all-rounder was advised to skip the County Championship.

"Sorry for getting grumpy", he said.

Meanwhile, Australia will face-off against India in the first ODI at the SCG on January 12th (Saturday).
