According to Australian media, Justin Langer is set to be appointed Australia head coach.
In March, Darren Lehmann stepped down as head coach of the Test team following the Australian ball-tampering scandal and now Langer will take his place. According to the West Australian, on Friday the Cricket Australia (CA) board will ratify the appointment of Langer.
However, CA says “no appointment has been made” and no candidate “will be put to the board” when it next meets.
A CA spokesperson added: “The process to be undertaken for the appointment of a new Australian men’s head coach will be discussed and agreed at the CA board meeting this Friday. We expect to have a clearer understanding of the approach and appointment timelines following this meeting.”
Recently, Langer has been coaching Western Australia and Perth Scorchers. He took interim charge while former coach Lehmann was away in 2016.
