Sacked India batting coach Sanjay Bangar is in some serious trouble after reports emerged that will be questioned by the BCCI for allegedly misbehaving with national selector Devang Gandhi.if outgoing administrative manager Sunil Subramanian or head coach Ravi Shastri file an official report on the matter.

 

“In such a scenario, one needs to go strictly by the rule book. First and foremost, the man who Bangar is alleged to have insulted, the national selector Gandhi, he needs to officially report the matter,” a senior BCCI official told PTI on conditions of anonymity.

“Outgoing administrative manager Subramanian, in his mandatory report, needs to mention the matter clearly. Last but not the least, head coach Shastri, Bangar’s reporting head, also needs to file it in writing that such an incident happened,” the official said. “If all these boxes are not ticked, then there is no question of placing it before the CoA (Committee of Administrators),” he added.

Earlier the same matter was reported in The Times of India, which said that the decision taken by selectors did not impress the former batting coach as he barged into the selector’s room while the interviews for the coaching staff were going on and warned the committee against replacing him in the team.

“(When the selection committee was conducting interviews) … He went and knocked on Devang’s door late in the evening and gave him and the selection committee an earful. He warned the selectors that the team would rally around him and the decision (to replace him) would fall flat. It wasn’t required. It wasn’t the team’s job to decide on support staff. It was the selectors’ call,” a source said to the publication. 

The report also mentioned that the BCCI is not very chuffed with the way Bangar has carried himself during the stint and that several instances of indiscipline have been reported to COA chief Vinod Rai. “But that is not a decision for the selection committee to make. Right now, the board is clearly not happy with his behavior. Too many instances have been brought to the notice of COA chief Vinod Rai,” said a source. 

“The fact is that trust became an issue within the team when it came to dealing with Sanjay,” the sources added. 

After a dominating show against West Indies, Team India will now South Africa in their own backyard. The home series will also see Indian team having a new batting coach as Vikram Rathour replaces Sanjay Bangar for the role.
