Team India assistant coach Sanjay Bangar is of the opinion that it won’t be a big problem for the Indian players to make the transition from T20 cricket to One day cricket when they take the field during the upcoming 2019 World Cup which is slated to be played in England and Wales. He said that the Indian batters must safeguard from play premeditated shots in order to survive and be successful in English conditions.

Sanjay Bangar stated that they are not obsessed with the number of boundaries they hit in an innings but are more focused on play a risk play cricket.

“In T20, you’re all the time expecting what the bowler will bowl,” Sanjay Bangar was quoted as saying by Bangalore Mirror. “You end up planning beforehand looking at field placements… The go-to balls for most bowlers are analysed in detail. Batsmen start expecting such deliveries. In 50 overs where you have more time and are getting 300 deliveries instead of 120, you need to be mindful of not premeditating shots for the major part of the innings.”

The former India all-rounder further stated that the rhythm of batting added with match fitness and temperament will be key to the success for the Men in Blue in the showpiece event. Sanjay Bangar opined that Indian players needed to shift the focus to one day cricket for the moment as the IPL is all done and dusted. He also elaborated what sort of approaches they have applied in the 50 overs format.

“We’ve our own internal parameters as to how to approach ODIs. If we come close to those parameters, we should be fine,” Bangar said. “What makes the Indian team unique is that it’s consistently playing risk-free cricket. And that’s because we emphasise on the ones and the twos. As a batting group, we are not obsessed over the number of boundaries we’ve hit. But we discuss strike-rotation a great deal. Which is why we’re able to eschew risks.”
