WTC Final: KS Bharat or Ishan Kishan, who should get a chance against AUS? Know the opinion of former coach
While Bharat has not been able to show anything special with the bat, Ishaan is currently in good form. In such a situation, which of the two should be included in the playing eleven. Former India coach Ravi Shastri has given his opinion on this.
The final match of the World Test Championship (WTC) will be played between India and Australia from June 7 at The Oval in England. However, there is a big challenge before India regarding this. The big question is who should be included as wicketkeeper in the playing XI. In fact, India’s first-choice wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant was injured in a car accident and is recovering from it, while Lokesh Rahul, who is going to the country as his replacement, is also out due to surgery on his right thigh. Currently, the team includes KS Bharat and Ishaan Kishan as wicketkeepers. Bharat had earlier kept wicket during the Border-Gavaskar series. At the same time, Ishaan has to debut.
While Bharat has not been able to show anything special with the bat, Ishaan is currently in good form. In such a situation, which of the two should be included in the playing eleven. Former India coach Ravi Shastri has given his opinion on this. Ravi Shastri said that you have to see who is the better wicketkeeper. Is it Bharat or Ishan Kishan? Now the fact that Bharat was given a chance against Australia where he played all the Test matches, I think he would be the obvious choice to be picked in the playing XI. Ishan, on the other hand, did not get a chance against Australia and was included in the Indian squad for the WTC after Rahul was injured during the IPL.
India and Royal Challengers Bangalore’s experienced wicketkeeper Dinesh Karthik feels that Bharath’s experience should make him an automatic choice for the WTC final. Karthik said, “I think Bharat will be an easy choice with Ishan Kishan making his debut and going straight into the World Test Championship final will be more than expected.” He added, “And the fact that KS Bharat is Perhaps because of being a better wicketkeeper, he makes his side heavy. So I think he will go with KS Bharath for the final. Bharat has played only four Tests but his home experience of 90 first-class matches in the longest format gives him the upper hand. Ishan, on the other hand, is yet to make his Test debut and has played 48 first-class matches. Ishan has achieved more with the bat than Bharat.
