Australia Test captain Pat Cummins says the players "absolutely love" Justin Langer as question marks remain over whether he will hold on to his position of coach once the Ashes series is over.
The future of Langer remains in doubt despite him helping Australia win the recent T20 World Cup and the Ashes series against England and a decision has yet to be made.
There had been plenty of talk of unrest behind the scenes after Australia lost the Test series to India last summer, with some reports claiming the players did not like Langer's coaching methods.
It did lead to a number of meetings involving all parties and Langer has adapted his style but there is still talk of a shake-up with the coaching.
Cricket Australia will make a decision after the Ashes are done but as far as Cummings is concerned he would like Langer to stay involved.
"That’s above my pay grade. We’ll wait and see, it’d be nice to have clarity for everyone," Cummins said when asked about Langer staying on. "But he’s been doing a fantastic job, we absolutely love JL.
"He’s been really great through the World Cup and the Ashes. Honestly, it’s not been a talking point at all within the camp.
"The plan has always been to chat about it after the Ashes, so the powers that be, I’m sure, will chat at some stage. But he’s been fantastic for us and the boys love having him around."
Former Aussie batsman and team-mate of Langer, Steve Waugh, is in no doubt Langer should stay on after guiding them through some tough times since the sandpaper scandal.
"Position in doubt? Influenced the culture and character of the team after the Cape Town debacle," Waugh posted on Instagram.
"Coached the team to a winning World Cup 20/20 and now to a commanding Ashes victory. Time to put the rumours and innuendo to rest. #respect #culture #character."
