Five Cricketers Who Can Replace Sanjay Bangar as Team India’s Batting Coach
Soon after the twelfth edition of the ICC World Cup 2019, the Board of Control for Cricket India (BCCI) has opened the window for the new applications regarding the chief coach and support staff for Team India.
Meanwhile, India’s head coach Ravi Shastri alongside batting coach Sanjay Bangar and bowling coach Bharat Arun respectively can reapply for the post after their tenure saw the extension for at least 45 days including the fielding coach, R Sridhar.
Following a stinging loss against New Zealand in the recently-held World Cup semi-final at the Old Trafford in Manchester, the BCCI is looking for a way forward for the paradigm shift.
The reports suggested that there are plenty of chances that Bangar might lose his spot despite a good record in his CV. Former cricketer Bangar had played a pivotal role for the Men in Blue in recent years.
The Maharashtra-based 46-year-old Bangar had represented India between 2001 and 2004. Bangar had featured in 15 ODIs and 12 Tests for India.
Meanwhile, in every possible situation, the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) presided by Kapil Dev will be ready for the pronouncement following the deadline of July 30.
Let’s look at the five cricketers who can replace Sanjay Bangar as Team India’s batting coach:
The former New Zealand skipper has vast experience as a coach. The star cricketer had been the part of three-time IPL champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) as a coach. Kiwis veteran had featured in 280 ODIs and 111 Tests for his national team to amass 7000 runs and 8037 runs respectively across both formats.
Under his leadership, CSK had won the coveted titles in 2010 and 2011 before winning the title after two-year hiatus.
Having a reputation as a coach, Fleming had excelled in challenging conditions. So, he is one of the following cricketers who could play a crucial role for Team India, particularly as a batting coach.
