Ishan Kishan and Yashasvi Jaiswal made their test debuts for India in the WIvsIND, 1st test in Dominica. Although there were no questions about Yashasvi Jaiswal‘s inclusion as an opener for India, netizens were unhappy with Ishan Kishan’s inclusion in the test arena for the men in blue, dropping KS Bharat from the team.

Ishan, who did not play any first-class match recently, replaced KS Bharat as the wicket-keeper batter of the team. Bharat, who featured in five tests for India, did a decent job with the gloves in the absence of Rishabh Pant and Wriddhiman Saha. With Rahul Dravid and the team management being vocal about not thinking of Saha as the future, Bharat was told to be the future for India with the gloves on.

Ishan Kishan averages 38.76 with the bat in first-class cricket and last played a red-ball game in in December 2022.

Now, after just playing five tests, all against Australia including the WTC Final in England, was dropped without much clarification from the team management. As per the fans, if BCCI had believed that KS Bharat was the future, why he got replaced by someone who did not even play a red ball game in recent times. Kishan last played a red ball game in December 2022.

KS Bharat scored 129 runs in five tests averaging only 18.42 with the bat to go with his 13 dismissals from behind the stumps.
