The Bangladesh Cricket Board has approached former India batting coach Sanjay Bangar to change into the nationwide crew’s guide in purple-ball cricket. A BCB official advised PTI that Bangar was approached for the Test batting consultant’s function however there has not been any clear response from him. “He has been offered but we are not sure. We are hearing that he could also be occupied elsewhere,” the official mentioned.
Former South Africa worldwide Neil McKenzie is presently working with the Bangladesh batsmen within the shorter codecs. Bangar was with the Indian crew from 2014 to 2019 and was changed by Vikram Rathour at first of the house season in September. The West Indies tour, which happened after the World Cup, was his final project. In reality, Bangar was the one one to get the axe within the Indian help workers with head coach Ravi Shastri, bowling coach Bharat Arun and fielding coach R Sridhar retaining their roles.
Bangar has been busy commentating on the sport ever since his sacking. The 47-year-outdated performed 12 Tests and 15 ODIs for India between 2001 and 2004. “We have spoken with Bangar (for Test batting consultant) but nothing is finalised yet,” BCB chief government Nizamuddin Chowdhury advised reporters in Dhaka on Wednesday. “We are negotiating with a few others as well. McKenzie is looking after the red-ball cricket despite being a white ball consultant and till we get a batting consultant for Test cricket we are expecting him to do the job (in red ball),” he added.
