Former Australian captain Ian Chappell termed Ricky Ponting, Shane Warne, Mitchell Johnson, Matthew Hayden and Adam Gilchrist as ‘PR Machine’ for Justin Langer. The former Australian cricketers have slammed Cricket Australia and players for resignation of head coach Langer.

Test skipper Pat Cummins was not convinced with intense coaching methods of the former coach. Chappell has come out in support of the players especially Cummins.

“It is easy to lambast Cricket Australia and players. Cummins deserves credit for being honest. Justin Langer’s PR machine has been at work,” he told the Wide World of Sports this week.

“Captain has got to get the coach that he gets on with and works well with,” he added.

Under Langer, Australia won the ICC T20 World Cup and the Ashes.
