Former India batting coach Sanjay Bangar has determined towards taking the Bangladesh Cricket Board’s supply to grow to be its Test workforce’s advisor citing his personal and professional commitments.
Bangar was provided to teach Bangladesh batsmen in red-ball cricket eight weeks in the past however he may not take up the supply as he signed a two-year contract with Star Sports within the interim.
“They offered me the position eight weeks ago. But in the interim, I finalised finalised my contract with Star which gave me the opportunity to balance out my personal and professional commitments. However, I look forward to working with BCB in the future,” Bangar instructed PTI.
Former South Africa batsman Neil McKenzie is primarily working with the Bangladesh aspect for the shorter codecs.
Bangar was with the Indian workforce from 2014 to 2019 and was changed by Vikram Rathour in the beginning of the house season in September. The West Indies tour, which came about after the World Cup, was his final task with the Indian workforce.
Bangar was the one one whose contract with the Indian workforce was not renewed 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 he was changed by Rathour. The 47-year-old 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 instructed reporters in Dhaka earlier 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.
