Langer, 47, will begin a four-year contract on May 22, which will include two Ashes series a World Cup and World T20 tournament.

He takes over a depleted team, with captain Steve Smith and vice-captain David Warner, the side's two top batsmen, suspended for a year for their roles in the ball-tampering.

After a week of bad headlines, is it time for a reckoning of Australian cricket?

"Over the next 11 months, there's a chance for some guys to take their opportunities ... to even make us stronger, and add to the depth", he said.

"The biggest challenge Justin Langer faces is who to replace them with". I look back on my career, the Mount Everest moment was 2004 when we finally beat India in India. If I was to say the people who love cricket more than anyone I've met in the game there was Mike Hussey and there's Steve Smith and there's Cameron Bancroft.

Langer will be charged with reshaping Australia's cricket culture after the chaos of the past couple of months. "That said, we can also modify our behaviours", he said. "There is a difference between competitiveness and aggression and we've got to be careful with that", Langer said.

"Great appt, congrats to Alfie @CricketAus will do a great job". Over the next four years, starting from day one, that's really important.

"We'll learn from what's happened", he said. That's why it was a surprise they made the mistake they did.

At his first press conference since being confirmed as the new national coach, Langer said his focus would be on earning back respect for the team both on and off the field.

"Justin was the clear standout, particularly based on his recent coaching and player development achievements", Stuff.co.nz quoted Cricket Australia chief executive James Sutherland as saying.

Langer had a decorated playing career, representing Australia in 105 Test matches and eight ODI matches. He scored 7696 Test runs - including 23 centuries - and was an integral member of the Australian team during one of the most successful eras of all time.

His playing career spanned nearly 20 years and 360 first-class matches, scoring more than 28,000 first-class runs.

Clark lauded Langer's success as coach of Western Australia and Big Bash franchise Perth Scorchers. He's been at the helm as Scorchers won the T20 league on three occasions, the most of any coach, in 2013-14, 2014-15 and 2016-17.

In six seasons in charge in the West, Langer helped the Warriors to two One-Day Cup wins and two Sheffield Shield finals, and also steered the Scorchers to three BBL titles.

Langer will take the reins for next month's one-day worldwide tour of England and will be tasked with leading the Australian team through one of the most hard years in recent times without Smith, Warner and Bancroft.
