Justin Langer says break caused by coronavirus crisis 'like nirvana' as tired Australia get time to recharge

Australia coach Justin Langer says the enforced break brought about by the coronavirus outbreak has been “like nirvana” for his exhausted players.

New Zealand’s white-ball tour of Australia was called off after just one match behind closed doors, while many of Langer’s players were due to be involved in the IPL, which has been postponed.

Australia have had a busy summer playing Pakistan and New Zealand at home, and India and South Africa away. Langer says they now have an opportunity to “recharge”.

“The truth for me personally, and for a lot of the players, is this is like nirvana in the fact we’re home with our families,” Langer said via conference call from his Perth home.

“We’re sleeping in our own bed, we eat home-cooked dinners, and we can still work – in one degree or another – from home.

“We identified in South Africa that a number of our players were physically and mentally exhausted.”

Langer said Cricket Australia would be paying particularly close attention to players and staff who lived alone in this time of isolation.
