In addition, he talked about how he constructed a superb working relationship with the players and never faced any issues with a dressing room which had several superstars. But he has had a substantial effect on Indian cricket and the former batting trainer has talked about he worked with distinct Indian batsmen differently right through his stint.
We worked on his alignments, positioning on the crease, his strategy in seaming conditions. Shikhar was initially thought of as an off-side player, he used to remain with all the line of the ball. We worked on how he could get behind the line and open up scoring places and defeat his dismissals from the short ball,” Bangar was quoted by Cricbuzz.

For all his talent and pedigree, Rohit Sharma had a visible weakness against the incoming shipping, particularly when it was delivered with a left-arm seam bowler. Bangar revealed how he worked with the right-hander with this specific issue. He also talked about Cheteshwar Pujara reducing the width of the stance so as to be more successful.
“For Indian batsmen, who aren’t that tall and who perform a lot on wickets with varying bounce and turn, footwork is an integral part of batsmanship which allows better control,” Bangar mentioned on the reasons why the broad stance was done away with.
In addition, he talked about how he constructed a superb working relationship with the players and never faced any issues with a dressing room which had several superstars.
“Never. My experience in dealing with players is that once they trust you, they’re more concerned about their potential rather than the trainer’s past,” he added.
For Bangar batting is about being clear from the thought process and understanding what works in which states.
“I was vigilant about how a player stays near these fundamental foundations and also his personal style of play, through regular video footage and one on one talks,” he revealed.
