“You won’t meet a person of greater integrity than Graeme Hick. His worth ethic is unbelievable, his knowledge of the game is unbelievable, so it was a really tough call. “It’s nothing that he’s done, it’s more of an impact of the cost-cutting that we’re doing because of the COVID situation,” quoted Australia coach Justin Langer as saying.

“We’re just going to have to be more creative and we’re going to have to work through solutions for how we can make that mentoring happen in these tough times.

“We will certainly have less staff on the road with us, but the guys will still get great support. We’ll be a bit leaner and sharper, that’s for sure, but we’ll survive, we’ll adapt, and the players will still get the service required,” Langer added.
