Stuart Broad got into David Warner's head during Ashes, says Australia coach Justin Langer
Australia coach Justin Langer says David Warner allowed England bowler Stuart Broad to "get into his head", but added that he plans to persist with him in the Test team for the Australian summer.
Warner endured a miserable runs of scores in England, ending with the unwanted record of the record fewest runs made by a Test opener across a five-match series, tallying just 95 over his 10 innings - which included a run of three successive ducks.
Langer has backed Warner to bounce back, though has suggested he was too affected by his struggles against Broad, who got him out seven times out of 10 in the series.
"I've learned over a long period you never write off champion players, it doesn't matter what sport, you never write off champion players," said Langer, whose team retained the Ashes with a 2-2 series draw.
"They tend to come good, don't they? So he's had a tough series, no doubt about that, but he's also a champion player, so usually with champion players they get a bit more time to come good.
"He had this series, it didn't go to plan, but he's seen how successful he's been and the impact he can have on Australian cricket teams winning, so I'm confident he'll come good.
"Actually, I'm hopeful he comes good. Talking frankly, I thought he let Broad get into his head and I think he thought way too much about it.
"I used to have it against Murali [Muttiah Muralitharan] and I couldn't solve the issue, and it's so hard when you're trying to problem-solve and then you're in the middle of a big series trying to solve the puzzle.
"In this instance I don't think David solved the puzzle, and he'll be the first to admit that.
"He'll probably be very relieved when he gets on the flight home knowing he doesn't have to face Broad for a while, I reckon."
Meanwhile, Langer added that he was receptive to the idea of outgoing England coach Trevor Bayliss performing a future role for Australia.
Bayliss has expressed interest in working for his native country in some capacity following the end of his four-year reign with England which ended with a victory at The Oval to deny Australia a first outright series win in England in 18 years.
"Bayliss, from a personal point of view and as a mentor, I'm sure I can learn a lot from TB, if he's open to it," said Langer.
"He's a seasoned campaigner, he's an Australian. I know he's done a great job for England but I know he loves Australia as well, so who knows what could happen there."skysports.com
We have a large database of Guyanese worldwide. Most of our readers are in the USA, Canada, and the UK. Our Blog and Newsletter would not only carry articles and videos on Guyana, but also other articles on a wide range of subjects that may be of interest to our readers in over 200 countries, many of them non-Guyanese We hope that you like our selections.
It is estimated that over one million Guyanese, when counting their dependents, live outside of Guyana. This exceeds the population of Guyana, which is now about 750,000. Many left early in the 50’s and 60’s while others went with the next wave in the 70’s and 80’s. The latest wave left over the last 20 years. This outflow of Guyanese, therefore, covers some three generations. This outflow still continues today, where over 80 % of U.G. graduates now leave after graduating. We hope this changes, and soon.
Guyanese, like most others, try to keep their culture and pass it on to their children and grandchildren. The problem has been that many Guyanese have not looked back, or if they did it was only fleetingly. This means that the younger generations and those who left at an early age know very little about Guyana since many have not visited the country. Also, if they do get information about Guyana, it is usually negative and thus the cycle of non-interest is cultivated.
This Guyana Diaspora Online Forum , along with its monthly newsletter, aims at bringing Guyanese together to support positive news, increase travel and tourism in Guyana and, in general, foster the birth of a new Guyana, which has already begun notwithstanding the negative news that grabs the headlines. As the editor and manager of the publication, I am committed to delivering Blog entries and Newsletters that are politically balanced, and focused on the positive ideas we wish to share and foster among Guyanese.
