New Delhi, Sep 14 (IANS) Former India batting coach Sanjay Bangar believes that Team India will be able to successfully chase down targets they haven’t achieved in the past if Rohit Sharma succeeds at the top of the order in Test cricket.
Rohit, who is a regular opener for Team India in the limited-overs format, has been included in the 15-man squad for the upcoming three-Test series against South Africa beginning October 2.
KL Rahul, who had been opening the innings for India in the last two years, has been dropped owing to his poor form. In the two-Test series against the West Indies, he managed scores of 44, 38, 13 and 6 and didn’t seem to be in any sort of form.
His last 50+ score since his 149 against England at the Oval came some 12 innings back.
His poor form opened the opportunity for Rohit, who has been for long waiting for his chance to come good in red-ball cricket as well.
“At the moment, there is no place in the settled middle order in the Test team. Opening will be a new challenge for him, since he has rarely done it in the longer formats. But the advantage is that he will get to bat against a hard ball with plenty of gaps in the field. He will also not have to wait for his turn to bat, which will save his mental energy,” Bangar told ESPNcricinfo in an interview.
“If he succeeds, his style of play will be extremely helpful to the team. It might result in being able to successfully chase down targets that we haven’t achieved in the past, like in Cape Town and Edgbaston,” he added.
Considered as one of the modern-day greest of documentaries on the OTT,” Arjun said.
The “India’s Most Wanted” star said that the ride of OTT platforms has changed the game.
“If you see in the last couple of years, the quality of theatricals has become better. I do feel that we are witnessing the best period of disruption where each medium is pushing the other to do better, to produce content that stands out and are clutter-breaking. Today, truly content is king and it is the only thing that matters,” he said.
Arjun said that he would anyway prefer to sit at home and discover great shows and movies and binge on them than going out for a party.
“Watching disruptive, innovative content can expand one’s thinking about the kind of stuff audiences are watching in their homes. It can prepare us with information on what kind of films to make so that people feel the urge to come to the theatres,” he added
He also shared his vision for his social media property.
“‘Arjun Recommends’ is my attempt to bring together like-minded people who love to watch something good and clutter-breaking. This digital property is allowing me to engage with people from across India and understand from them what works,” he said.
