Ha, there’s an article in the HUN by Peter Lalor suggesting this summer (he doesn’t say when this summer though) is the perfect time for Langer to pull the pin.

The knives are out.

We literally could have been drawn against any combination of teams and it be considered a horror draw. We actually got lucky as is not being drawn against India or Pakistan given the conditions that will be on offer.

Bangladesh actually have to go through the qualifying stage first before even making it to the main draw (tells you where we are at given we just lost 4-1 to them!).

Good to see everyone catching up on Langer. It's only taken Glenn Maxwell's prime to figure it out. Maybe Bancroft should get another go? Or some other West Aussie who fits Langer's cricket nerd archetype.

I know you’re joking re Bancroft but has there been a worse batsman (that’s played 10 tests or more ) in the last 30 years? And with such a terrible technique?

Ave 26 in his 18 test innings.

Yep you've got me. In terms of techniques, Travis Head's is interesting to say the least, but he actually has a decent Test record to date.

15 man World Cup squad has been announced. Henriques, Carey, Tye, Phillippe and Turner all omitted from the recent tour. Christian and Ellis travelling reserves.

Inglis the big mover coming into the squad as back up gloveman. I am a fan - I think he should actually be ahead of Carey in the pecking order in all formats.

I think anyone who has ever had anything to do with the Australian Cricket team would be pretty down on Malcolm Conn today.

To speak out of school like that is unbecoming the privilege of being in the inner sanctum. It's tacky and unAustralian.

He should be ashamed of himself.

I'm very biased, because I like JL and he has always been good to me and my family, but I think he is being treated really unfairly at the moment. I've also been on the end of him at his absolute worst so I know his capacity for rage, but it comes from a place of wanting to achieve the best he can.

It's a bit like Nathan Buckley being maligned as a player, JL is super passionate, super intense and doesn't suffer any sort of half hearted commitment.

Yes, his approach may not sit well with everyone, but I defy anyone to suggest that following his example won't make you a better athlete and a better person.
