Out of the two veteran races, Ranji superstar will end the wait of one and a half years against Australia?
India vs Australia Test Series: Due to a horrific car accident last December, Rishabh Pant has not been able to be a part of the Test series between India and Australia. KL Rahul, KS Bharat, and Ishaan Kishan are three wicketkeepers part of Team India if Rishabh Pant is not in the team. It is being claimed about KL Rahul will not do wicketkeeping. In such a situation Bharat and Kishan are left with options. With Rishabh Pant and KL Rahul out of these two giants, now the wait of one and a half years for the Ranji superstar may be over. This superstar player can make his Test debut against Australia in Nagpur.
The four-match Test series between India and Australia is going to start in Nagpur on 9 February. Indian captain Rohit Sharma and coach Rahul Dravid are in a dilemma regarding playing XI before the series. He is in the hospital after Rishabh Pant’s car accident. It is said that it will take almost a year for him to recover. In such a situation, there is a dilemma in front of the team to choose the new wicketkeeper. At present, KL Rahul, Ishaan Kishan, and KS Bharat are the three wicketkeepers in the Indian Test team. All three are new to wicketkeeping in Test cricket. In such a situation, the dilemma of choosing one of these three has come in front of the team management. (KS Bharat/Instagram)
Due to Rishabh Pant’s injury and KL Rahul not keeping wickets in Tests, Ranji Trophy superstar KS Bharat’s wait of one and a half years may be over. KS Bharat has been a part of the Indian cricket test team for the last 1.5 years, but due to the presence of Rishabh Pant, he had to wait continuously on the bench. But now the time has come for this superstar. KL Rahul has suffered a lot of injuries in the last year, due to which he will not be in the race for wicketkeeping. (KS Bharat/Instagram)
In a report by Inside Sports, a senior BCCI official has been quoted as saying, “KL has suffered many injuries in the last year. Wicketkeeping in Test is not right for him. Tests require specialist wicketkeepers and the Indian team has two wicketkeepers each KS Bharat and Ishaan Kishan. It is for the team management to decide who to pick.” (KS Bharat/Instagram)
KS Bharat has been waiting for more than the last 1.5 years and considering his home record, he remains the frontrunner in the Test series against Australia. There is tough competition between Bharat and Kishan if the team management will not make KL Rahul wicket-keeping, but if we look at the figures, KS Bharat is seen winning. Ishaan Kishan remains the first choice of wicketkeeper in white ball cricket. Ishan Kishan has been the number 1 keeper for India since the ouster of Rishabh Pant from white-ball cricket.

If you look at the statistics of domestic cricket, then Bharat’s experience is much more. Ishaan Kishan has played 48 matches in his first-class career, while Bharat has played 86 matches. Ishaan Kishan has scored 2985 runs at an average of 38.76 with 6 centuries. At the same time, KS Bharat has scored 4707 runs with an average of 37.95 and 9 centuries. India has more domestic experience and also consistency. Along with this, cricket veterans and experts have also been continuously advocating for KS Bharat. (KS Bharat/Instagram)
KS Bharath is the only wicketkeeper-batsman in the history of the Ranji Trophy, who has achieved the feat of scoring a triple century. The 29-year-old Bharath from Andhra Pradesh has been an important part of India A. In the absence of Rishabh Pant and Wriddhiman Saha, Bharat has also played the role of reserve wicketkeeper in the Indian Test team. Once against New Zealand, instead of Wriddhiman Saha’s substitute, he came on the field for wicketkeeping for 12 minutes. In these 12 minutes, he had impressed everyone through two catches and one stumping. (KS Bharat/Instagram)
At the same time, Ishan Kishan’s red-ball appearance for India A was in 2017. After this, he was mainly a part of white-ball teams. Ishaan Kishan, who has done wicketkeeping in first-class cricket, has been in the middle for a long time. Ishaan Kishan was not behind the stumps in the two Ranji Trophy matches he played for Jharkhand this season. Kumar Kushagra did the wicketkeeping. In such a situation, logically KS Bharat is the only player who should get a chance to keep wickets against Australia. (KS Bharat/Instagram)
