There are “no cowards in an Australia team,” according to Pat Cummin

In response to remarks made by the previous coach Justin Langer, Australia’s captain Pat Cummins made it clear on Tuesday that the team had “no cowards.”

Nick Hockley, the head of Cricket Australia, dismissed Langer’s assertions and backed the team; Cummins also vehemently defended his dressing room.

Langer then claimed he was not talking to players when he used the word “cowards,” a move Cummins said he appreciated.

In February, Langer quit his job as a result of tense contract negotiations with Cricket Australia and his failure to earn the public support of important players.
