Earlier a report published in PTI stated that the future roadmap of Indian cricket is the central point of the interview. “What should be a three-year leadership plan across formats once Rohit Sharma’s captaincy tenure ends?” “What is the pool of Gen-Next spinners that we have across formats?” “Is any 2022 U-19 World Cup-winning player ready to be upgraded to the highest level?” ”Can there be any other option apart from KS Bharath, who could be tried as Test keeper in Rishabh Pant’s absence?” read the PTI report.
Following Rishabh Pant’s horrific car-accident and likely possibility of his unavailability from the international contest, CAC tried to understand the probable prospect who can don gloves across format. KS Bharat, and Ishan Kishan are likely frontrunners to be India’s preferred wicketkeeper choice.
