We hope that India’s performance will continue like this and before the World Cup, Team India will be seen with a perfect playing XI. After Rishabh Pant got injured in a horrific accident, the question in the mind of all the cricket lovers is that which wicketkeeper will take his place. Rohit Sharma has cleared it to a great extent.

The Indian team is currently practicing in Nagpur and yesterday Rohit Sharma was seen having a conversation with KS Bharath. For a long time Rohit was seen explaining something to Bharat. It is expected that in the first match, India will be seen replacing Pant. Talking about Bharat, he has been associated with Team India for the last 2 years. But till now he has not got a chance to play a single test match. In such a situation, this will be a special opportunity for KS Bharat to start in Tests for Team India.
