Prior to their 2 crucial tasks, the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 and the Ashes series, Marnus Labuschagne has acknowledged addressing the ongoing disputes and anxiety in the Australian dressing room caused by current head coach Justin Langer’s teaching approach. According to his aggressive coaching style, Langer has received a lot of attention. Unfortunately, Australia has lost 2 series to the West Indies and Bangladesh, and the attention will not be turned away from him.
We can all move forward and have our focus on winning this World Cup: Labuschagne
“It’s never nice when it comes out like it has, so that’s not how we want to do it,” Labuschagne told. “But we want to make sure that we come together as a team and for those things that have come out, it’s been spoken about that it’s come to a head now and there have been conversations had, and we can all move forward and have our focus on winning this World Cup and retaining the Ashes”.
“I’ve spoken to the coach, absolutely. I’ve been in touch with him in the last couple of weeks and just having a chat with him. I think it’s really nice that those players and coaching and support staff are out of quarantine and can spend a bit of time with their families before what is going to be a massive five months,” he added.
Labuschagne has been seen for Glamorgan in the County Championship. He also appeared to be in fine shape, and he was very expected to go along with the limited-overs visits to the West Indies and Bangladesh unless the management chose differently. The 26-year-old went on to discuss the forthcoming Ashes series and also how English players are required to consider their families’ safety while on a 5-month trip.
“There was a little bit of chatter about that but the welfare of the players and making sure their families can come out here,” Labuschagne said. “Everyone can recognize it, you don’t need to be a cricketer to recognize the importance of making sure the mental health of all the players is in a good space, especially after the World Cup, followed by the Ashes. It’s a really long four-five months.”
“But I have no doubt between the government and Cricket Australia we’ll be able to sort it out and get ourselves in a position where we can have a full-strength England side versus a full-strength Australia side,” he concluded.
