“With all due respect to KS Bharat…,” as it were: A former India selector describes Pant as the “ideal replacement” for the Australia Tests

During the Border-Gavaskar Series in February, India may be looking for a new Test wicketkeeper.

If Rishabh Pant does not recover from his horrific car accident, India may be looking for a new wicketkeeper batter for their upcoming Test series against Australia. In the wake of being in a mishap from the start on Friday while driving on the Delhi-Dehradun expressway, Heave is presently getting treatment.

Even though KS Bharat has frequently replaced Gasp as wicketkeeper in ongoing Test matches, former India selector Saba Karim acknowledges that the 29-year-old wicketkeeper probably won’t be a good match. Interestingly, Karim stated that Gasp’s propensity to score quickly makes Ishan Kishan appear to be a more appealing candidate for the position.

I think KS Bharat is getting ready to play keeper in a Test. With all due respect to Gasp, however, I believe that Ishan Kishan would be a better fit to fill Gasp’s position due to his performance in the Test group. Karim stated to India News, “He is playing the Ranji Trophy and has scored a hundred at a rapid pace.”

In restricted-overs cricket, Kishan, who recently scored a record-breaking two centuries against Bangladesh, is currently Rohit Sharma’s choice to open the Indian innings. Pant is a regular for Jharkhand in the Ranji Trophy whenever he is available, despite the fact that he has not yet appeared in a Test match. A few days earlier, he had scored a century and a half against Bangladesh. The game’s opponent was Kerala.

Because he played match-winning knocks quickly, Pant was the reason we were winning Test matches. Not only did this put opponents under more pressure, but it also gave the bowlers enough time to take 20 wickets. Despite not playing for India A, Karim asserted that Kishan has played domestic red-ball cricket for a few years.
