Justin Langer on mental toughness, meditation and watching the ball

Former Australian batsman and current Aussie head coach Justin Langer is this week's guest on Lessons Learnt with the Greats. I was lucky enough to play a few Tests with JL, one of Australia's toughest, most resilient and focused cricketers ever. In our chat, JL talks on a wide range of topics from mental toughness to meditation, batting techniques to training his body, who has inspired him to his life philosophies. It's an enlightening conversation and I hope you enjoy his amazing insights.
