The Indian cricket group have had some extraordinary wicket-keepers for many years. But, because the arrival of MS Dhoni, the supplies of ‘specialist wicket-keepers’ have actually dropped, with groups favoring those that can do well with the bat as well. During journalism seminar in advance of the 3rd ODI in between India and also New Zealand, head instructor Rahul Dravid additionally highlighted the very same. Dravid pointed out the instances of Sanju Samson, KL Rahul, Ishan Kishan, Rishabh Pant, and also KS Bharat from the present plant of gamers that drop in the group of real ‘wicket-keeper batters’.
“We always looking for a wicketkeeper-batsman, there is no question about it. I think since there has been MS Dhoni, in white-ball cricket, the days of specialist wicketkeepers are gone unfortunately. We are lucky and we are fortunate that all of the guys who are in contention, even in this team you know whether it’s Ishan Kishan or KS Bharat are both good batsmen and have done well in the Vijay Hazare Trophy. Bharat hasn’t played but Ishan has obviously done well as a batsman,” Dravid stated in feedback to an inquiry from a press reporter in the presser.
The India head instructor strongly thinks that being simply a wicket-keeper isn’t sufficient, as the needs of the video game are such that a person needs to be a ‘wicket-keeper batter’ to make it in the present times.
“There is Rahul there, Samson is there, but unfortunately, Rishabh is injured. All of these guys are wicketkeeper-batsmen. I think today, you have to be a wicketkeeper-batsman. You should be able to bat and contribute significantly. We have also picked up Jitesh Sharma in the T20 mix because of his ability to bat and score runs at a very quick pace as he has shown in the Mushtaq Ali Trophy and in the IPL that he has played. So yeah it’s given now that all teams need a wicketkeeper-batsman,” Dravid described.
With Pant most likely to be inactive for the majority of this year, the similarity Sanju Samson and also Ishan Kishan are most likely to obtain even more possibilities in white-ball cricket. In the red-ball style, KS Bharat would certainly intend to be awarded for his efficiencies in the residential range.
