Team Management & Selectors Were Part of Decision on No. 4: Sanjay Bangar

Kohli top-scored for India with an unbeaten 82-run knock, thanks to a crucial partnership with Dhoni for the fifth wicket in chase. "The only thing that eluded us was the World Cup", Bangar said. Sanjay Bangar Was Involved in a Verbal Fight With Selectors After Being Snubbed As Team India's Batting Coach, Claims Report.

The 46-year-old said it was natural for him to feel "disappointed" after his contract was not renewed but reflected fondly upon his time with the Indian side. Reuters."The entire team management and selectors were part of the decision making for the No. 4 spot".

India's overseas performances have improved significantly in recent years and under Shastri they have won series in West Indies, Sri Lanka and Australia, the latter a historic 2-1 triumph earlier this year. "I have been travelling for five years, I don't think I may take up roles outside India immediately", Bangar told Cricbuzz on Wednesday.

After serving Indian cricket for five long years, Sanjay Bangar has said that he will not be taking up any overseas roles in the near future. "The choice relied upon current form, fitness criteria, whether he was a left-hander, whether he could bowl, etc", he insisted.

India head coach Ravi Shastri, has rebuffed reports claiming rift between skipper Virat Kohli and his deputy Rohit Sharma, stating that a contrast in outlook on team matters should not be deemed as a conflict.

"Look at how we have performed in T20, one-dayers and Tests and even in the big ICC tournaments, it is unbelievable", Shastri said. "We worked on his alignments, positioning on the crease, his approach in seaming conditions", he said. Apart from him, he also worked with Cheteshwar Pujara, who shortened his stance.

"Shikhar was initially considered to be an off-side player, he used to stay beside the line of the ball a lot. We worked on how he could play along the ground initially and strike rotation". "We worked on how he could get behind the line and open up scoring areas and overcome his dismissals against the short ball", Bangar stated.

The team selection in 2019 came under a lot of criticism especially the players for the number four position.

Talking about Rohit Sharma, Bangar stated that they labored collectively on combating the issues the right-hander confronted in opposition to the incoming balls, whereas Pujara labored on lowering the width of his stance. "It is to their credit that they worked tirelessly to unlearn old methods and learn new ones through constant repetition".
