India assistant coach Sanjay Bangar defended right-handed batsman MS Dhoni’s slow batting in their previous 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup game against England on June 30. Bangar stated that Dhoni has always done his job exceptionally well for the team.
“Except for one odd innings, he has done the role always. Five out of seven games he has done the job for the team,” said Bangar. “If you see the earlier games, against South Africa he stitched together a partnership of (74) with Rohit (Sharma). After that, what was required of him against Australia, he did that.”
