Sacked Indian batting coach, Sanjay Bangar will be questioned by BCCI for allegedly misbehaving with national selector Devang Gandhi if outgoing administrative manager Sunil Subramanian or head coach Ravi Shastri file on official report on the matter.

Sanjay Bangar is now replaced with Vikram Rathour. It has been reported that, Sanjay has barged into the room of selector Devang Gandhi on the recently-concluded West Indies Tour and the encounter wasn’t pleasant.

A senior BCCI official anonymously commented to PTI, “In such a scenario, one needs to go strictly by the rule book. First and foremost, the man who Bangar is allegedly have insulted, the national selector Gandhi, he needs to officially report the matter.”

While the BCCI officials acknowledged Bangar’s confrontation with Gandhi but they are not sure whether the matter should be escalated now that he is no longer contracted by the BCCI.

The official said, “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.”

He added, “If all these boxes are not ticked, then there is no question of placing it before the CoA (Committee of Administrators).

Although, all the officials agreed that Bangar had reasons to be disappointed after getting the boot, they felt it was out of line by Bangar to confront the selector.

An official said, “Anyone is bound to be disappointed after being sacked. But why did he think he was guaranteed an extension? Shastri, Aarun and Sridhar’s performance was good and they were retained. Bangar’s performance was rated poor and he was removed.”
