Hyderabad: After the Indian cricket team rewrote the history by beating Australia in the 4th test match at Gabba in Brisbane, Australia, a video of Australian cricket coach, Justin Langer, raging in fury is being shared on social media with a claim that the video was taken after India's historic victory at the Gabba. The video showed Langer getting up from a chair and kicking a dust bin in anger. After that, he picks up the trash and puts it back in the bin.

The video is shared with the caption, "Priceless reaction from Aussie coach after losing the match."

Fact Check:

The claim that the video was taken after the India test match win is FALSE.

When NewsMeter searched for the video online using some of its keyframes, we found a tweet from April 2020 stating "Cant's stop re-watching when Justin Langer hoofs a bin in complete vein-bulging fury at Nathan Lyon's butterfingers at Headingley... and then very responsibly picks up the rubbish."

Taking a cue from this, when we searched using the keywords "Justin Langer kicks dust bin", we got several articles on this incident.

According to theaustralian.com, this incident occurred during the Headingley Test between Australia and England. Langer has imposed the punishment on himself after kicking the bin in frustration when a Nathan Lyon missed a catch letting England win the match.

This was documented for an Amazon documentary series 'The Test'. We can see the same clip in the promotional videos posted by Amazon Prime Video Sport.


Here is another report about the documentary series which talks about what happened and when this happened.

Therefore, the viral video is an old one, and the claim that this incident happened after India won the test series against Australia is FALSE.
