So, I am not sure it is Is it worthwhile or not and does it make sense to continue investing in KS Bharat? He is also not 20 years old and India moved on from KS Bharat to Ishan Kishan. So he has done a lot to retain his place in the team. Have done something. This team management believes in being fair to every individual.

“India will start looking at KS Bharat to see if his keeping is so good that we can keep someone who is not contributing that much with the bat. Recently in India and around the world, if you look at Looking for keepers who are good keepers but contribute with the bat. I mean look at Rishabh Pant in the last 3-4 years, his contribution with the bat. So, these are the things that India have to focus on. , “They said.
