However, Rishabh Pant may not be fit in time for the forthcoming 4 match Test series against Australia, and the likes of inexperienced KS Bharat, veterans Wriddhiman Saha and Dinesh Karthik, or limited overs specialists Ishan Kishan and Sanju Samson can get a chance. KL Rahul can also keep wickets.

KS Bharat played in the IPL for the first time in IPL 2021 for the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and scored 191 runs in 8 games at an average of 38.20 and a strike rate of 122.43.

He was then released by RCB and was picked by Delhi Capitals (DC) for INR 2 crore, at 10 times his base price, at the IPL 2022 mega auction in Bengaluru. However, KS Bharat played just 2 games in IPL 2022 and scored 8 runs.

Meanwhile, KS Bharat entered the IPL 2023 mini-auction with a base price of INR 20 lakh. The 29-year-old wicketkeeper-batter KS Bharat was bought by the Gujarat Titans (GT) for INR 1.20 crore at the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 mini-auction.

KS Bharat has amassed 4533 runs in 84 first-class games averaging 37.46 playing for Andhra with 9 tons and 25 fifties. KS Bharat replaced Wridhiman Saha behind the stumps after the latter complained of stiffness in his neck ahead of the start of play on Day 3 of the Kanpur Test between India and New Zealand on November 2021 and he took 3 catches behind the stumps.
