JL ready for ludicrous claims, Barmy barbs

AAP Australian Sports – Justin Langer insists that “absolutely ludicrous” Cape Town claims and Barmy Army barbs will not sidetrack Australia’s World Cup defence.

Summary

  • Justin Langer insists that “absolutely ludicrous” Cape Town claims and Barmy Army barbs will not sidetrack Australia’s World Cup defence.
  • Langer’s team have turned the corner and banked eight consecutive ODI victories during their greatest winning streak in the 50-over format since the 2015 World Cup.
  • But the sandpaper scandal is what continues to dominate discussion in Australian cricket circles, especially given last week marked the end of Steve Smith and David Warner’s year-long ban.
  • Langer is still fuming about a report that suggested Australia’s bowling attack refused to play alongside Warner last year after the ball-tampering furore.
  • Langer has previously noted it would be unfair on the team plus Smith and Warner if they just returned to the fold without any sort of plan.
