Congratulations to CLCRF Patron Justin Langer who has been inducted into Australian Cricket’s Hall of Fame!
“With his role as national coach in the spotlight all summer, Langer was given the ultimate accolade on Thursday with his induction into the elite group,” said Scott Bailey from Perth Now.
As a coach, Justin has helped lead Australia out of the ball-tampering scandal, and he has recently led successful campaigns in both the Twenty20 World Cup and Ashes. After months of speculation around his job, he hopes to have a continued role in Australia’s elite structure.
“Justin has had a tremendous impact on Australian cricket, both at the top of the order alongside Matthew Hayden, as a coach of Western Australia and more recently … the Australian men’s team,” expressed Cricket Australia CEO Nick Hockley.
Even with his increasingly busy schedule, Justin has always remained eager and honoured to be a part of CLCRF, which he has been the Patron for 22 years. Since his initial appointment in 2000, he has been a wonderful ambassador who has helped us raise so much awareness for childhood cancer research.
On behalf of everyone at the Foundation, we commend Justin for this incredible and well-deserved honour!
