Ishan Kishan vs KS Bharat: Ishan Kishan or KS Bharat who will be the wicketkeeper against Australia? Know who is in how much water
Will Ishaan Kishan get a chance to make his Test debut?
Ishaan Kishan has been getting a chance to play continuously in limited overs for some time now. However, he has not taken full advantage of this opportunity. Leaving wicketkeeping aside, Ishaan Kishan has disappointed a lot with the bat. Recently, Ishaan Kishan was part of the playing XI of Team India for three ODIs and as many T20 series for India but he has failed completely in both the series.
Ishaan Kishan has been able to score only 24 runs in the three T20 series against New Zealand. Ishaan Kishan could not do anything special in the ODI series. Not only this, Ishaan Kishan is scoring runs in 14 innings in T20 International at a strike rate of just 14.28.
In such a situation, looking at the current form of Ishaan Kishan, it is clear that in the four-Test series against Australia, it can be expected that he will get a chance to play. In such a situation, the name of KS Bharat can definitely be considered in his place.
KS Bharat’s claim is strong
Apart from Ishaan Kishan, KS Bharat can be a strong option in the Test series. Bharat has been consistently coming to Andhra Pradesh in domestic cricket with batting as well as wicketkeeping. Even before this, KS Bharath was included in the Indian Test team but he did not get a chance to play in the playing XI. At the same time, Ishaan Kishan has also not got a chance to debut in the Test team.
In such a situation, it is believed that KS Bharat can be preferred in place of Ishan Kishan on the basis of experience on home soil.
