Sanjay Bangar broke into the selector room and was involved in a verbal dispute: Sources
MUMBAI: batting coach Sanjay Bangar The waiting period is coming to an end and the lack of trust charges are being expressed as the reason for leaving after a period of five years.
Wednesday morning, when India's tour of the Caribbean ended with a resounding victory for virat Kohli Co, news came that Bangar, who was in the middle of his final assignment, had broken into the room of one of the national selectors: Devang Gandhi - About two weeks ago and I had a heated exchange for his impending omission as a national team batting coach.
(When the selection committee was conducting interviews) ... He went and knocked on Devang's door late in the afternoon and gave him and the selection committee a warning. He warned the selectors that the team would join around him and the decision (replace him) would fall apart. It was not necessary. It was not the team's job to decide on support staff. It was the call of the selectors, the sources in the know told TOI.
According to reports, Bangar also told Gandhi that if the selectors did not see him fit in the role of the Indian batting coach, they should try to include him somewhere in the National Cricket Academy (NCA). But that is not a decision that the selection committee should make. At this time, the board is clearly not happy with their behavior. Too many cases have been notified to COA chief Vinod Rai, a source said.
Repeated attempts to contact Bangar were in vain.
Brought on board as an assistant coach of the Indian team in 2014, Bangar spent five years at work before the national teams thought it was time to face new faces to allow new ideas to leak.
Bangar may be upset, but those who know it say there is no reason for him to be. The fact is that trust became a problem within the team when dealing with Sanjay, sources said.
Within the team's administration, it was argued against Bangar that he never agreed with the team management's decision to propel MS Dhoni in the batting order despite popular opinion within the team. There was a complete mismatch of ideas. However, it is not as if someone had complained against him. If you have to look for answers, it is the job of the COA. The COA will investigate it, the sources added.
