Justin Langer's contract is in CA's hands, loved my time with him: Pat Cummins

The Australia Test skipper said speculation surrounding Langer's job was not healthy and did not want to add to it

Australia Test captain Pat Cummins says that it is fair that Justin Langer goes through the evaluation process to extend his contract as head coach of the side. he further adds that he has loved working with Langer, but the decision to extend his contract or not lies with Cricket Australia (CA).

Since taking charge in 2018, Australia have retained the Ashes in England, comprehensively beat England at home and also claimed their maiden T20 World Cup title among other achievements.

"It's in Cricket Australia's hands," Cummins was quoted as saying by the Sydney Morning Herald.

Cummins said speculation surrounding Langer's job was not healthy and he did not want to add to it. 

"JL's been doing a fantastic job, he's been there for four years, his contract is obviously up soon, they're just going through an evaluation process at the moment, which I think is fair, the right thing to do.

"We all get evaluated all the time as cricketers. It's part of a high-performance environment. That process is happening, it's a decision for Cricket Australia and we just have to wait.

"That's Cricket Australia's job, it's not my job. I've really loved my time working with JL," said Cummins.

While former teammates like Matthew Hayden, Shane Warne and Adam Gilchrist have come out in support of Langer's contract extension, there has been media speculation about resentment towards him among current players, although no one has openly criticised the coach.
