Sanjay Bangar can be described as a go-getting all-rounder who plays the role of a batsman as well as a bowler for Railways; as far as Ranji Trophy is concerned. He has, in fact, proved to be extremely lucky for India, winning 5 and drawing 1 of his 6 test matches, inclusive of 3 overseas winnings. Sanjay had to remain away from cricket due to an untimely injury, but returned with a bang! This can be grasped from the fact that he scored a century against Zimbabwe in 2nd test.
