Rishabh Pant surpassed all expectations in Tests will improve in limited-overs Sanjay Bangar

Bangar, whose India career lasted just over three years, was often mocked for his lack of global exposure and how could he coach the likes of Kohli. "The only thing that eluded us was the World Cup".

(Credit: Twitter)"Being disappointed is a natural feeling, which lasted for just a few days". Reuters."The entire team management and selectors were part of the decision making for the No. 4 spot". The 46-year-old expressed that he is happy to help the Indian cricket side. "The choice relied upon current form, fitness criteria, whether he was a left-hander, whether he could bowl, etc.", Bangar told Cricbuzz.

After spending a lot of time on the road, Bangar is in the mood to "reflect, refresh and reinvent" and said that he may not take up any other coaching assignment immediately.

Bangar's five-year stint with the Indian team as batting coach ended after the West Indies tour where India won the T20I, ODI, and Test series without breaking too much sweat.

Pant is a thinking cricketer

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.

He has seen the progress of a number of batsmen underneath his watch which additionally contains captain Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and the remainder.

While Bangar was directly responsible for fixing the middle-order muddle, the former India opener, reacting for the first time since leaving Team India, said in an interview with Times of India that all decision makers were part of the search for the elusive No 4 batsman.

Difference of opinion can not be construed as conflict, said India head coach Ravi Shastri as he sought to play down the speculation of a rift between captain Virat Kohli and his limited-overs deputy Rohit Sharma. "We worked on his alignments, positioning on the crease, his approach in seaming conditions", he said. Cheteshwar Pujara scored 12 in Tests. Shikhar was initially considered to be an off-side player, he used to stay beside the line of the ball. Sometimes, it might be the junior most player in the team who may come up with a strategy that we hadn't even thought of, and we need to bring that to the table. "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. "We worked on how he could play along the ground initially and strike rotation". In Pujara's case, we worked on reducing the width of his stance, and how he could be more upright.
