After India’s unexpected defeat in the Semi-Finals against New Zealand, India’s Batting coach Sanjay Bangar’s position has come under the scanner where BCCI is expected to turn a tough face.
At Old Trafford, Manchester, Team India suffered a 18-run defeat in the Semi-Finals of the on-going ICC World Cup 2019.
Chief Coach Ravi Shastri and the coaching staff which includes Batting coach Sanjay Bangar have been given a 45- days extension post World Cup, however, they are being closely monitored as a few of BCCI officials are unhappy with Bangar’s execution.
Although, being an assistant coach, Bangar performed the role of a Batting coach. According to sources, some of BCCI’s officials believe that he should have done a better job as the team was capable of achieving much more.
Bowling coach Bharat Arun and Fielding coach R. Sridhar have done a splendid job in the last year and a half, however, same cannot be said for Bangar. A senior BCCI official said that the decisions taken and the processes of the support staff have been questionable as Bangar had stated that all players are fit hours before all-rounder Vijay Shankar was ruled out of the tournament for his injury. It was an irresponsible behaviour on his part where Bangar was unsuccessful in finding solutions to matters.
