Former Indian captain Sunil Gavaskar has recently given a big statement regarding this great match. He has told that who will take the field as wicket-keeper batter for the Indian team in the World Test final?
Former cricketer Sunil Gavaskar said about this that KL Rahul should be given a place in the team as a wicket-keeper batter in the WTC final. They said,
‘You can see KL Rahul as a wicketkeeper. If he bats at No.5 or 6 at The Oval (WTC Final), our batting will be stronger because he batted really well in England last year. He had scored a century. Keep KL Rahul in mind when you pick your playing XI for the WTC final.’
Let us tell you that if KL Rahul is included in the team as a wicketkeeper in the World Test final, then it is clear that KS Bharat will not get a place in the playing-11.
Along with this, while discussing the performance of KS Bharat as a wicketkeeper, Gavaskar said that picking Rahul for just one Test match would give depth to the Indian batting line-up. They said,
“Dinesh Karthik had told the flaws in Bharat’s wicketkeeping during the commentary. The real test of a wicketkeeper is on pitches where the ball is taking turn..you can see the dismissal of Travis Head. When the ball turned and hit the wicket, KS Bharath’s gloves were nowhere near the ball. This means that if the ball had not hit the stumps, the opposing team would have got four runs. This is really a matter of concern. Now whether he will get a place in the playing 11 or not is up to the selection committee, but in England there are no pitches where the wicketkeeper has to come up and stand. In such circumstances, you can choose KL Rahul as the wicket-keeper and even consider Ishan Kishan. His batting would definitely be better than Bharat.”
