Australia are currently hosting West Indies as their Test summer kicks off. The Pat Cummins-led team will play two Tests against the Kraigg Brathwaite-led team starting on November 30. But all the attention is around the comments made by Justin Langer about his sacking and him calling the players “cowards”. Notably, the former Australia coach made serious allegations as he accused players of leaking information to the media and also called them cowards. 

"Everyone was being nice to my face, but I was reading about this stuff and half of it, I swear to God and on my kids' lives, I could not believe that is what was making the papers. A lot of journalists use the word 'source'. I would say, change that word to 'coward',” Langer had said.

In response to the same, Pat Cummins has said that there is no coward in the Australian team. The Australian captain also thanked Langer for clarifying on what he was trying to say. 

"There's no cowards in an Australian cricket team, not ever," he told reporters on Tuesday. "I'd probably never disclose private conversations. I think it's disappointing sometimes the focus gets drawn to off-field issues but it hasn't really affected our team."

"I think there's no ill will to what he was trying to do and he clarified afterwards," Cummins said at Optus Stadium with the 'Justin Langer Stand' in the backdrop. “I think he had a think about it and clarified it, so thank him for that. But we're really proud of the last 12 months, how we've fronted up, the way we've played, the way we've conducted ourselves. Players can certainly hold their heads high."

Notably, Australia and West Indies play the first Test from 30 November- 4 December at the Perth Stadium. The second Test will be played from 8-12 December at the Adelaide Oval.
