Cricket Australia has chosen Justin Langer to be the new coach of Australian Cricket team following the explosive fallout to the ball-tampering controversy saw Darren Lehman resign.

Former Australian opening batsman Justin Langer would be taking the reins of the controversy-ridden Aussie team, West Australian reported.

The appointment would be ratified by Cricket Australia at the board meeting on Friday.

Langer has coached Western Australia and Perth Scorchers for the past five seasons and now he would probably be coaching the national side.

But, it is still unclear of Langer would be taking on the head coaching role for Australia in all three formats or not.

He coached the Australian team on a one-day tour of the Caribbean in 2016 during the absence of Darren Lehman and led the national T20 side at home against Sri Lanka last year when the series clashed with the Test tour of India.

Langer is best known for his bravery and he averaged 45.27 in 105 Tests. He maintains an image of a man who can understand the different personalities in a team and can take the best out of players.

Lehmann had resigned in the wake of ball-tampering scandal after Former captain Steve Smith called a press conference where he took the full responsibility for the team’s involvement in a ball-tampering controversy during the third Test in South Africa.
