The former opener replaces Darren Lehmann who resigned from his duties following ball-tampering incident that saw top players banned from global cricket for a period of 12 months.

"To me that's worth more than all the gold in the world", he said.

He was named as Assistant to Darren Lehmann for the T20I tri-series between Australia, New Zealand and England - played in Australia and England in February. As a coach he has enjoyed success - not only in overseeing strong teams, but also in developing cricketers who are ready to play worldwide cricket for Australia.

Now, over 11 years have passed since they both stood on the same field in the Test arena, and Langer has been appointed as Darren Lehmann's successor as national coach across all three formats.

He also led the WA Warriors to one-day Cup titles twice, in 2014-15 and 2017-18. "Without them, it's going to make winning games a lot more hard".

It can also be revealed Warner has been in discussions with his grade club Randwick Petersham to play for nothing in the NSW Premier Cricket competition next season.

"To me, respect's worth more than all the gold in the world".

"Through his own playing career, he's got a good insight into what it takes - he wasn't the most naturally gifted player but he got everything out of his talent".

Regardless, Clark knows Langer will face a challenge to fill the gaping holes left by Smith and Warner, in particular. They have all got areas.

"If we can keep mentoring and helping them and they want to meet the standards of the Australian cricket team, then of course they'd be welcomed back".

The 47-year-old comes in at a time where Australia are looking to restore their tarnished reputation in the aftermath of the ball tampering scandal. That's mental toughness, it is about being 100% focussed on the next ball.

"When I took over.it was like a dysfunctional family", Langer said on Thursday.

"The public will be disappointed if we don't play hard competitive cricket", Langer said.

"There are some big tournaments coming up", Langer told mediapersons today. But ultimately, if I fast forward it, the Indian Test tour in about three or four years time, to me that's the ultimate.

"We will judge ourselves on whether we're a great cricket team if we beat India in India". But they are great kids, we have all made mistakes, we can all get better at things.

"We'll learn from what's happened", he said. The Australian Cricket Team is in great hands. I like us all to be tight, not just the players but the support staff, Cricket Australia.

James Sutherland, the CA chief executive, said Langer was the "clear standout" choice.

"It is humbling to be appointed as coach of the Australian Men's Cricket Team", Langer was quoted as saying by ESPNcricinfo.

"We firmly believe Justin is the right person to lead this team and have huge confidence in what he will bring to the role", he added.
