Langer's video in the yellow kit has been widely shared on the internet.
In the footage, when asked about Langer's outfit, all-rounder Dan Christian said, "I am not sure of the exact bet. But it has something to do with West Coast Eagles and North Melbourne Kangaroos' game."
"I am not sure what would have happened if West Coast would have defeated North. I don't know what Mitch would have to wear. Maybe he would have had to wear some of JL's cloth, small men's training kit. But, I think something like that," he added.
On Monday, Langer's beloved Eagles went down by 10 points to North Melbourne. Interestingly, Mitch's cousin Brad Sheppard plays for the Eagles as a defender.
Many fans had a field day in the comment section of the post.
A cricket enthusiast requested Australian management to make Langer open the innings in the next game.
"Make him get on the pitch we need a good opener," the user wrote.
Another follower was surprised to see Marsh supporting North. "Mitch Marsh is a Norf supporter," read the comment.
