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.

Former Australian wicketkeeper Adam Gilchrist has endorsed Justin Langer as a "good fit" to take over as coach of England for his next move.

Langer's well-documented resignation as coach of Australia has quickly sparked speculation as to where the 105-time Australian Test representative will land next.

The 51-year-old has gained reported interest across the globe, with Sri Lanka among the latest keen suitors set to contend for Langer's services, which are set to be on offer as early as next summer.

Recently speaking to The Daily Telegraph, Langer's manager James Henderson stated that his client will be back in the frame within the next 12 months.

“There’s a lot of interest in Justin’s availability from all around the world. We’ve received a lot of approaches inside and outside the game,” Henderson said.

“I’m sure Justin Langer won’t be unemployed next summer.”

After amassing a maiden T20 World Cup title and a 4-0 Ashes series win in recent months, Langer's tenure with Australia was littered with success.

His signature would be hard to ignore, namely for nations currently without a senior coach.

England's interim managing director Andrew Strauss has previously hinted that Langer could be in consideration to succeed Craig Silverwood, who was released of his duties on the eve of Langer's resignation earlier this month.

Trading Australia for England would be an entertaining thought for Langer following the messy exit that led to his departure. And while the Western Australian would be a coveted coach for the Poms, Gilchrist is of the belief England may need to tread water before moving for Langer.

“I get the feeling that doing it straight away... it just might be a bit soon,” Gilchrist told The Shackles Are Off podcast. “He’s been hurt — you don’t need to be Einstein to work that out.

“I don’t think he’s going to be short of opportunities, so he needs to work that out.

“I don’t say this in a provocative sense, but I do look at the set up at the moment with England and think, ‘geez he would be a good fit’.

“It would be intriguing to see what could grow and develop and sprout from that.

“And Joe (Root) as captain I think would benefit from a figure like Justin alongside him."

Australia are yet to appoint a senior coach to take over from Langer, with assistant Andrew McDonald currently undertaking interim duties ahead of next month's tour of Pakistan.
