Langer in tense exchange with reporter amid Maxwell questions

But when he was left out of the Australia squad again, reports were rife that his continued omission had got to do with much more than just cricket.

"Are you certain that's what happened?" an annoyed Langer replied to the reporter.

Langer did realize that he lost his cool so he apologized for getting grumpy.

Langer shot down rumours there were other forces at play behind the Victorian batsman being overlooked for the upcoming two-test series against Sri Lanka, echoing the sentiment of chairman of selectors Trevor Hohns.

"But the truth is a lovely thing".

On Thursday, Langer was pressed on whether a directive had been issued to Maxwell about county cricket.

Melbourne Stars BBL captain Glenn Maxwell is unhappy about his his treatment from Cricket Australia. Langer repeated. "No, I've got zero knowledge of that", he then said, before calling it "careless whispers".

India beat Australia 2-1 to clinch the Test series creating history.

The movie, which the makers say is a tribute to the superstar, brings back the old-school Rajni in a new setting. Sun Pictures has filed the complaint against Tamilrockers and such websites not to release movie online.

Such emails were a common part of discussions with players, according to CA, but in no way inferred guarantee of selection. The question centered around an assertion an unnamed member of Cricket Australia's National Selection Panel provided messaging Maxwell prior to Australia A's tour of India in 2018 that led to the allrounder opting not to pursue an opportunity to play county cricket.

Justin Langer had a temporary role earlier in West Indies.

Langer was appointed the new Australian coach in May, which was after Maxwell was reportedly told to abandon his country plans, so he may not be aware of every detail of the 30-year-old's situation. Sorry everyone for getting grumpy. "He's crystal clear and ... he's shown he is brilliant around the group in white-ball cricket". There's been some reports about (his) personality. that is literally false.

After another series and another omission for Maxwell, Langer was prodded by a reporter for an explanation regarding an alleged directive from selectors for the all-rounder to focus on white-ball cricket and give up an opportunity to play county cricket in England.

"He's crystal clear what he has to do and that's important that he knows that and I know that as the coach and one of the selectors".

"It's not true. All the conjecture about it - that's all part of the noise". I was hoping that was a positive note to go to Dubai.

"There's a big thought from my side that I'm not getting enough first-class cricket in Australia and that's probably shown by this summer".

"I feel like I'm doing everything I can and I'm trying to make all the right moves off the field by getting red-ball cricket elsewhere and showing I'm 100 per cent serious".
