Sanjay Bangar

April 17th, 2008

Sanjay Bapusaheb Bangar is an Indian cricketer. He is an all-rounder and has represented India in Tests and One Day Internationals.

In only his second Test, he scored 100 not out against Zimbabwe at Nagpur batting at number 7. In the 2002 tour of England, he was promoted to open the innings at Headingley after some poor performances by Wasim Jaffer. He responded with his most important innings for India and made a patient 68 on the first day in an invaluable partnership with Rahul Dravid in difficult swinging and seaming conditions. Later on in the same match he also chipped in with two important wickets to set up a rare innings victory for India away from home.

Sanjay Bangar was named as part of India’s squad for the 2003 Cricket World Cup, but his performances for India began to tail off. He has not played international cricket since January 2004 as the selectors decided to concentrate on younger talents.
