Sanjay Bangar Credits Tough Practice Sessions For Lower-Order Batting Success in Tests
Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin have been instrumental in maintaining India's unbeaten winning streak in Tests under Virat Kohli's captaincy.

One batsman fails, other performs, he fails then some other stands up, and if all the batsmen fails, then the lower-order takes charge. Well, that has been the story for Indian team this winter. Not only the recognized batsmen but also the bowling all-rounders have stepped up to score runs for their country in Tests.

Counting from the West Indies tour to the home series against New Zealand and England, lower-order batters like Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja and Jayant Yadav have all piled up bulk of runs, with two centuries going Ashwin’s way while one landed in Jayant’s kitty.

Ever wondered how easily the bowlers are scoring so much of runs. Well, India’s batting coach Sanjay Bangar has got an answer. Former India international Bangar ,in an interview with Mumbai Mirror, said the equivalent batting practice for bowlers to that of the batsmen’s in nets have actually given fruitful results.

“I believe the only way to polish your skills is to train in a correct manner with a lot of quantity and a clear plan. Your body must get into right positions such that you are able to execute all the shots you want to. From that perspective we ensured that our lower order got the same amount of batting practice as our front-line batsmen.”

Ravichandran Ashwin of India was the most sort after player in Tests this year. With a mountain of contribution he made with both bat and ball, he was bestowed as the ICC Test Cricketer Of The Year and also ICC Cricketer Of The Year, recently. The bowling all-rounder was hit his purple patch, as he bagged 72 wickets in 12 matches played, with eight five-wicket hauls and three ten-wicket hauls. Ashwin also was among the run-scorers for India, as he scored 612 runs at an average of 43.71 with two hundreds and four fifties. The batting coach conceded Ashwin is a “very clever cricketer”, who is always eager to enhance his technical skills.

Ravichandran Ashwin’s batting in 2016 has been phenomenal, says batting coach Sanjay Bangar.

“He has a cool head, his technique is superb, and he allows the ball to come to him. And you can’t tie Ashwin down. He has the cut, he will drive you down the wicket, and even against spinners he’s a very busy player. Credit to Virat [Kohli] and the team management for putting him at No.6. With his experience he could control the innings there considering Wriddhiman Saha was relatively new, just settling in Tests,” Bangar concluded.
