Australia’s head coach Justin Langer on Wednesday asserted that there would be no room for abuse when his team takes on India in an upcoming series but he expects plenty of banter between the two evenly-matched sides.
Langer, who had a reputation of being an aggressive player himself, said that in the last couple of years, the Aussies have had lots of conversations about behaviours both on and off the field.
Australia have copped quite a bit of criticism for its players’ win-at-all-cost mindset in the past which even led to a thorough examination of the side’s attitude and ethics.
“People say you get nervous coming to Australia, I’m not sure it’s about the chatter. It’s because they’re coming up against very, very great players,” Langer said in an online media interaction ahead of the series starting Friday with the first ODI.
