Team India will not use star goaltender Rishabh Pant for the upcoming World Testing Championship (WTC) final. Pant was in a car accident last year and has been on the road to recovery ever since. In his absence, K.S. Bharat will likely keep the gloves and young Ishan Kishan will be the backup goalkeeper. Analyzing the composition of the Indian national team, former Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh believes that Vriddhiman Saha could replace K.S. Bharata as a wicket in the WTC Final against Australia.
“No, I don’t think so. K.S. Bharat is playing for India now. If it was Vriddhiman Saha, then I would say yes, play with him. He has more experience and he is a better goalkeeper. If K. L. Rahul was in shape, I would also prefer KS Bharat to him, ”Indian Express quotes Harbhajan.
Saha, who played for the Gujarat Titans in the recently concluded IPL 2023, has not played in Test matches for India since last February.
Many thought that Saha, who has a great IPL, would receive a one-off call, but Kishan’s selection showed that the Shiv Sander Das committee was sticking to continuity.
After the Saha categorically stated last year that he would no longer be elected to national duties as they wanted someone younger to replace Rishab Pant, there was no chance that the soon-to-be 39-year-old veteran 39 years old, would be named head of state. replacement.
