Justin Langer News
On Monday, Smith for the first time came out to talk about his keenness to lead Australia once again if given the chance. Justin Langer said there’s no position available for captaincy.

In the WTC standing, New Zealand finished 0.3 per cent ahead of Australia, who had decided not to travel to South Africa for a Test series due to the COVID-19 pandemic. India recently beat England 3-1 in a home Test series to set up a WTC final clash with New Zealand in June and Australia could have qualified in place of the Kiwis if not for that slow over-rate penalty. Meredith and the BBL’s player of the tournament Josh Philippe, who will soon reunite with Virat Kohli at Royal Challengers Bangalore, both debuted in the trans-Tasman series.
