Australian cricket coach and former cricketer Justin “JL” Langer has tried his hand at writing for kids with his new children’s book Cricket, The Aussie Way.
JL shares with Hope 103.2 his tips on how to play the game loved and watched by so many Australians – especially over the Christmas and New Year’s break.
He also talks about how COVID-19 has affected the sport and what life is like inside the ‘cricket bubble’.

About the book
When he had just embarked on his international cricket journey, Justin Langer sought advice from the great Sir Donald Bradman. This helped set him on the pathway to a wonderful Test career.
Now, just as he did for the Australian men’s team, Justin has stepped in to help a struggling new kids’ team – the Kangaroos.
JL takes the team through much more than skills training, as he honours the same spirit of Aussie cricket that he instilled into the national men’s side. He shares with them the importance of mateship, pride in effort, fair play, honesty, integrity, patience, courage and modesty. JL encourages the eleven aspiring cricketers to embrace these ideals as they strive to become Team Kangaroo.
