Raelee and Langer become the 58th and 59th inductees respectively of the Australian Cricket Hall of Fame, established in 1996. “Justin and Raelee are extremely deserving inductees and it is wonderful to acknowledge and celebrate the immense achievements and contributions of these legends of our game,” said CA CEO Nick Hockley.

Langer, who debuted in Test cricket 29 years ago, made 105 appearances while wearing the Australian Baggy Green, scoring 7,696 runs at an average of 4527. He spent the first years of his career at number three, including when famously partnering with Adam Gilchrist to chase down 369 to beat Pakistan in Hobart in 1999.
