Ahead of the upcoming India vs Australia Test series, Rohit Sharma and Rahul Dravid are in a serious dilemma in perfecting the playing XI. As Rishabh Pant is out injured and KL Rahul not to keep in Test, KS Bharat is scheduled to get his Test DEBUT after a long span of 1.5 years. KS Bharat has been with the Indian team for over 1.5 years, patiently waiting for his chance. The BCCI has made it clear that KL Rahul won’t keep wickets in the Test format. Ishan Kishan has been the No.1 keeper for India since Rishabh Pant’s snub from white ball cricket. Despite slamming a double century in ODIs against Bangladesh, Kishan’s recent performances have been sub-par. Against Ishan Kishan, Bharat gets the nod as a reward for his patience, Kishan’s recent mediocre stint in the white-ball format. On the other hand, KS Bharat has been in fine and impressive form in both First Class and List A cricket, thereby making him the prime choice in the upcoming mega-important Test series against Australia.
