Bangar reappointed India batting coach, Sharma joins backroom team


Sanjay Bangar and Abhay Sharma have been appointed as India's respective batting and fielding coaches for the upcoming Test tour of the West Indies.

Bangar previously served as batting coach during Ravi Shastri's stint as team director and took interim charge of India for the recent limited-overs series in Zimbabwe.

Following the hiring of Anil Kumble as India's new head coach on Thursday, the Board of Control for Cricket in India confirmed via Twitter both Bangar and Sharma have now been added to the backroom team.

The first of four Tests between West Indies and India takes place at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua from July 21.
