(Reuters) - Former opener Vikram Rathour is to replace Sanjay Bangar as India’s batting coach, the country’s cricket board (BCCI) said on Thursday.
The 50-year-old Rathour played six tests and seven ODIs for India between 1996-97 and has previously held the senior national selector’s role.
“Vikram Rathour has got enough experience and we are convinced with his skill sets (as a coach),” BCCI CEO Rahul Johri told reporters.
“The team management had their own views but looking ahead we felt there should be some freshness in the support staff.”
