5 batsmen whose career changed after changing batting position
2. Justin Langer:
One of the most successful Australian opener, Langer had very contrasting two halves in his career. While the second half witnessed one of the best modern era openers, his first half in cricket was not a fruitful one. He failed to live up to the expectations repeatedly despite a lot of chances.The legendary opener played only eight Tests in his first six years in international cricket.
However, his fortune changed after he was promoted to open the innings.He was a number three batsman until 2001 when he was dropped after failing to convert a series of starts during Australia’s 2–1 loss in India. Shortly after he replaced Michael Slater as an opening batsman for the final 2001 Ashes series Test at The Oval where he celebrated his return with a brilliant century. After that match he did not get dropped again and as an opening batsman he averaged 52.38 and scored 14 centuries in 44 matches.
