Justin Langer is undoubtedly, one of the best openers for Australia in the past. The left-hander played 105 Tests in his career in which he scored more than 7000 runs with a handsome average of just over 45. In his career span of 14 years, he only played 8 ODIs with the highest score of 36 to his credit. He, along with Matthew Hayden, counted as the most formidable Test opening pair in the early 2000s. Still being one of the finest batsmen of all time, Langer didn’t get a chance to play a World Cup game.
