Justin Langer Has Instant Regret After Snapping During Press Conference

Jan 10, 2019


Aussie cricket coach Justin Langer has apologised to a reporter for getting “grumpy” when asked about Glenn Maxwell’s non-selection in the Test squad to take on Sri Lanka.

Langer turned on a journalist and repeatedly pressed the reporter before moving on, then saying “careless whispers” and finally apologising.

“Sorry for getting grumpy… I don’t like getting grumpy but there’s so many stories that go around about so much stuff. Sorry everybody… we can talk about it after. The truth is a beautiful thing.”

Speculation has been swirling that Maxwell was overlooked because of personal differences with senior Cricket Australia officials.
