The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has taken a decision to retain the batting coach Sanjay Bangar included fielding coach R Sridhar for the ICC Champions Trophy. The contract for both coaches had ended in March and soon to come again in June.
It might be only a single change in the team’s support staff in England with Kapil Malhotra and taking over from Anil Patel as team manager.
The BCCI secretary Amitabh Choudhary said to The Indian Express that “It is decided that the support staff will remain the same at the Champions Trophy with the only change being Kapil Malhotra taking over as manager.”
“Bangar and Sridhar have been asked to extend their services for the duration of the tournament and then it will be decided what needs to be done.”
Talking about his team side’s Bangar said “I think all the batsmen apply a lot of thought. They put in a lot of effort. They want to excel and they want to breach their own benchmark. They are in their quest for excellence. Our job is to just give them some pointers so that they remain on the right track.”
Bangar talks about back in February, “A lot of batsmen have gone back to narrower stance purely because mobility is a crucial aspect in batsmanship. That is a crucial factor and we being Indians using feet has always been our strength and going over the top and not being afraid lofting the spinners.”
“We are always sending the message to spinners that we are coming at you has always been a strength of Indian batsmanship, over a number of years.”
