3 players who can keep wickets for India in the WTC 2023 Final
India qualified for the finals of WTC with New Zealand's thrilling win over Sri Lanka recently. Now, the discussions have started on what will be the composition of Team India for the game. Of course, with Pant absent and KS Bharat not doing so well with the bat, the position of wicket-keeper is still open. On that note, in this article, we take a look at three players who can keep wickets for India in the WTC 2023 Final.
1) KS Bharat
KS Bharat is one of the players who can keep wickets for India in the WTC 2023 Final. The management has given KS Bharat a run of four games and he actually had a decent show with the bat in the fourth game. Therefore, KS Bharat is likely to get the game for the WTC Final. The shots he played against Cameron Green proved that Bharat could be good against pace.
2) KL Rahul
With Shreyas Iyer unlikely to make it, India will have an opening in the middle-order. One of the best options is to have KL Rahul operate in the middle-order. If the management does not back KS Bharat, although it is a bold call, Rahul could be given the gloves. Therefore, Rahul also features on this list.
3) Ishan Kishan
Ishan Kishan was Bharat's backup in the recent BGT. Hence, automatically, he would be on the plane to England as Bharat's backup. It would not be a surprise if even Ishan gets a game. This could be down to the player's form in the IPL. If Ishan can play some attacking cricket, it would actually help the squad.
