The Cricket Australia board will meet on Friday to ratify the process that is set to see Justin Langer appointed as the next Australian coach.
Langer is poised to replace Darren Lehmann who quit in the wake of the Cape Town ball-tampering fiasco last month.
A Cricket Australia spokesman said an appointment was likely to be made by the start of next month.

Mixed opinions on this. On the one hand he implemented a no dickheads policy with WA and the Perth Scorchers which, for instance, saw a couple of players doing sprints the day after they ignored directives and had a night out. Obviously this helps to stamp out big egos and keep guys in check. On the other hand he wasn't exactly a squeaky clean player and some of the sides he has coached still have the tactic of "playing the game hard (i.e. sledging is part of the game plan)."

"You fucking inbred c**t, we all fucking hate you and we hate your whole tard ranch country and we hate your whole special-needs family."
"Uhh, I thought you guys were going to stop doing that sledging thing?"
"No, no, that wasn't abusive sledging, that was banter sledging. Don't you even know the difference you foreign dipshit cocksucker? Even shit-for-brains tits-for-hands Isaia Toeava knows the difference there. Why can you not be more intelligent and worldly, like, say, Byron Kelleher of New Zealand? You stupid pagoda-faced, toblerone-cocked useless sack of shi

And just watch, pretty soon the team will be complaining about how they don't like being called fucking cheats every game they play. I'd be very sheepish showing up after all the drama that went down in South Africa, you'd have to be one cocky son of a bitch to turn up and start tearing into the opposition.
