Stuart Broad got into David Warner's head


Australia's Tim Paine lifts the urn after the series was drawn meaning Australia retained the Ashes

"He had this series, it didn't go to plan, but he's seen how successful he's been and the impact he can have on Australian cricket teams winning, so I'm confident he'll come good.

"Actually, I'm hopeful he comes good. Talking frankly, I thought he let Broad get into his head and I think he thought way too much about it.

"I used to have it against Murali [Muttiah Muralitharan] and I couldn't solve the issue, and it's so hard when you're trying to problem-solve and then you're in the middle of a big series trying to solve the puzzle.

"In this instance I don't think David solved the puzzle, and he'll be the first to admit that.

"He'll probably be very relieved when he gets on the flight home knowing he doesn't have to face Broad for a while, I reckon."

Meanwhile, Langer added that he was receptive to the idea of outgoing England coach Trevor Bayliss performing a future role for Australia.

Bayliss has expressed interest in working for his native country in some capacity following the end of his four-year reign with England which ended with a victory at The Oval to deny Australia a first outright series win in England in 18 years.

"Bayliss, from a personal point of view and as a mentor, I'm sure I can learn a lot from TB, if he's open to it," said Langer.

"He's a seasoned campaigner, he's an Australian. I know he's done a great job for England but I know he loves Australia as well, so who knows what could happen there."
