Melbourne, May 3 (CRICKETNMORE) Justin Langer was unveiled as the new head of coach of the Australian cricket team at a press conference here on Thursday.Langer takes charge after Darren Lehmann resigned following a ball-tampering scandal in March which rocked the world of cricket, reports EFE news agency.

Former captain Steve Smith, vice captain David Warner were banned for one year, while player Cameron Barcroft was handed a nine-month suspension, for their roles in the incident."Cameron Bancroft and Steve Smith love the game more than anyone I know. They are cricket tragics and they're great kids. That's why it was such a surprise they made the mistake they did. They've made a mistake. We've all made mistakes, we can all get better at things. Davey Warner is the same, he's a really good young bloke", Langer said.
