Kishan is still to play Test cricket but scored 454 runs in 16 IPL 2023 matches recently.

Bharat has so far played in 4 Tests, all during the Border-Gavaskar Trophy earlier this year at home against Australia. He is the favourite ahead of Kishan because of his glovework quality but only has 101 runs to his name in 6 innings.

Ricky Ponting has asked for Kishan to play for India.

Bharat also spoke about what makes Dhoni one of the best wicket-keepers. The 41-year-old recently led Chennai Super Kings to the IPL 2023 title and continues to be one of the bests in the glovework department.

“It’s the awareness – the best example is MS Dhoni, the awareness he has in keeping is outstanding,” Bharat said.

“You need intent and passion to be a keeper, because keeping is a thankless job. You keep 90 overs in a Test day and you have to be concentrating ball by ball, so you have to accept the challenges and embrace it and be really passionate about contributing to the team.”
