    What's your opinion about Sanjay Bangar?



    The man who started as a bowling allrounder and now has cemented his place as a solid opener at test level

    In my opinion he's a batsman who bowls, and I seriously hope that India aren't considering him as a genuine all-rounder.

    Cricinfo seem to think he is a genuine All Rounder...for a guy who averages 60 odd with the ball...sounds like a slow batting Flintoff...

    20...that's a rather big number :(:(:(

    He is not an all-rounder in the true sense of the word. He is a severely limited batsman, who by virtue of playing within his limitations has met with some success at test level. As a military medium bowler, he can at best be accurate and restrictive. I like him as he is a hard working and unassuming cricketer, but he is in the team only because of a serious lack of quality pacers in India.

    He has a good defensive technique...but that's not useful for ODIs so I don't know why he keeps getting re-called...

    Then again, only Kallis is!

    He's played 4 games - of which 3 were consecutive - hardly "keeps getting recalled"

    But he hasn't really impressed when he has played and I can't see why he's got recalled again...

    I like Bangar coz i think he is very hard working and has good defensive technique and he can become a very good test opener.As far as onedayers are conserned, Bangar isn't going to open the innings, and he will be pretty much useless batting down the order at no 7 or 8 , so i don't think he has a realistic chance of making it to the WC.

    Though the wkts in SA will suit his style of bowling!

    Hes not that great at all , if india are looking for a better all rounder give robin singh a chance again , and im sure india dont use him for his "pace" as he hardly gets that many overs ...

    Frankly, I can't see Bangar existing outside of India. He will be successful at home but I doubt he will abroad; especially not in South Africa.

    Regarding the recall of Robin Singh, he's 39 years old!!!! If you're smart your not going to give him another chance. Look to the future. Bring on the youngsters.

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    I correct myself. He's coped in Test matches on Indian pitches but is seemingly hopeless in ODI's.

    4 Innings: 1,0,0,36(67 balls)
    Average: 9.25

    All played in India
    To further prove my point-

    Away record:
    Innings: 5
    Runs: 114
    50's: 1
    100's: 0
    HS: 68
    Avge: 22.8

    His avge at home is 47.8 with 2 50's and a ton. Overall he's a useful player but really nothing special. I doubt he will excel.

    His bowling in England looked good. Conditions suited him.

    He should be pretty mature by now houldn't he? He's about 30 yrs old, not much time left if he wants an internation career to speak about!
