In his column for The Telegraph, Langer wrote that Robinson was asking for trouble.
When I woke up from the press, my eyebrows were raised not only because of the spat with Khawaja. I grinned, shook my head, and thought, Silly boy. I had a pretty good idea of what would happen next, he wrote.
Hurt former Captain Ponting, Australia’s favorite little host, and there will always be a backlash. Here you are up against an entire country.
It’s okay to chat, but make sure you back it up. The send-off, the crack of legend, and the prediction of three #11s when the same rabbits score the winning goal. Junkyard dogs usually bark, he added.
Langer’s former opening partner, Matthew Hayden, called Robinsin a forgotten cricketer and suggested that his opinion was inconsistent with his talent.
He’s a fast bowler who bowls at 124km/h and has a southern mouth, Hayden told SEN Radio Australia. With someone like him, you can just say, ‘Bro, I’m coming at you. Davey Warner can do that, right. He can just say: You’re bowling 120.
Former Australian captain Ricky Ponting also has Robinson in his sights.
This England cricket team hasn’t played against Australia, and they’ll learn very quickly what it’s like to play Ashes cricket and play against a good Australian cricket team, Ponting said on the ICC podcast.
And if Robinson hasn’t figured that out yet after last week, then he’s a slow learner.
