Australia head coach Justin Langer said he feels like the "director of a soap opera" following Cameron Bancroft's interview regarding David Warner's role in the ball-tampering scandal.
Bancroft – whose nine-month suspension for his role in the ball-tampering controversy against South Africa in March expired on Saturday – discussed Warner's involvement in the fiasco during an interview aired on Boxing Day.
Australia was facing India in the third Test in Melbourne when Bancroft opened up on Warner's role and confirmed the left-handed batsman – who was banned for 12 months along with Steve Smith – devised the plan to alter the condition of the ball with sandpaper.
Asked about the interview, Langer told reporters: "I feel like the director of a soap opera. I honestly do.
"Coaching is about man management and looking after people, caring for people, and that was just another distraction last week.
"There's a really good process in place that we're going to go through to get the boys back in the team, I liked seeing Cameron play last night."
