Explaining the same, as per the quotes in India Today, Sanjay Bangar said, “They bowled good lengths. When you have assistance either in the air or even slight moisture on the pitch, the ideal part of the Indian bowling was how they exploited the conditions.”

The former India cricketer said the New Zealand batters will be disappointed because the pacers troubled the visitors, despite the batters being used to seaming conditions back home.

Explaining the same, Sanjay Bangar said, “They will be extremely disappointed because the seamers troubled them and got them out. Whenever you talk about New Zealand cricket, you talk about seaming conditions, but to be in such a position in two consecutive matches means it is an area of concern.”

He went on to say that such matches can have a long-term effect on teams, insisting that this loss could cause mental scars to the New Zealand players.

Talking about the Indian bowler, Sanjay Bangar said, “The way all the bowlers caused problems to the New Zealand batters, if New Zealand plays a knockout match against India in a big event, these mental scars will be in the players’ minds, that beating the Indian team is close to impossible. Such wins leave a long-term effect.”

The Royal Challengers Bangalore head coach said that the Indian fast bowlers didn’t use the short ball and kept their lengths up, and suggested that the Indian bowlers made brilliant adjustments on their part.

Sanjay Bangar further explained, “When they reflect on this, how all the bowlers kept their length up and didn’t use the short ball too much, they used them only when it was required. Most of the wickets came on fuller-length deliveries and I feel this was a very good adjustment they made and that is what the bowlers need to do.”
