Cricket Australia CEO James Sutherland and Justin Langer speak to the media during a press conference on May 3, 2018 in Melbourne, Australia. Langer has been appointed the Team Head Coach of the Australian men's cricket tea, replacing Darren Lehmann who resigned in the wake of the ball tampering scandal.

Despite Australia wrapping up the Ashes in just 12 days of cricket and winning a T20 World Cup before it, there is no guarantee coach Justin Langer will keep his job.

Langer has recently spoken out regarding his desire to continue coaching the Australian side in all three formats, but with CEO Nick Hockley and captain Pat Cummins refusing to back him up on the claim, speculation has continued to mount over his future.

But it may not be all bad news for Langer, whose contract is currently due to expire in the middle of 2022.

Australia are reportedly toying with the idea of splitting the coaching roles given the amount of cricket that is to come, with eight World Cups in the next decade and a hectic Test schedule.

The Daily Telegraph are reporting that while the decision is yet to be made, it will be confirmed shortly after the Ashes.

Plans are already underway for split coaching duties in March when a Test tour of Pakistan clashes with a one-day tour of New Zealand, and it could pave the way for the permanent future.

Head of selectors George Bailey confirmed it's something Cricket Australia could look at.

“I think that’s always something that could be looked at,” Bailey said.

“I think depending on who the coach is, who the captain is, what your sort of mix is in terms of how many players go across formats, all those things – which are constantly changing – they probably give you a different answer as to where you might go with that.

“How busy the schedules are, what World Cups are coming up. All of those things provide different challenges.”
