Ind vs NZ 2nd Test: Wriddhiman Saha or KS Bharat?
Wriddhiman Saha, the wicketkeeper of the Indian Test team, was injured during the first Test against New Zealand. But despite the neck injury, Saha played brilliant innings of 61 runs in the second innings. Now the question is whether Wriddhiman Saha whether 28-year-old KS Bharat will be included in Team India Playing 11 in the absence or not.
By the way, let us tell you that the Indian team bowling coach Paras Mhambrey said that before the second Test match will take a final decision on Saha’s fitness. He said that the physio is working continuously with the senior wicket-keeper batsman. However, it is highly likely that KS Bharat will make his official Test debut in Mumbai on Friday.
India vs New Zealand 2nd Test Match Playing 11
The Indian team is all set to play the second test match against New Zealand. If we talk about Team India Playing 11, then Saha can be seen making his Test debut instead of KS Bharat.
But the Indian team may have to make another big decision before the second test match against New Zealand. Because Virat Kohli is also making a comeback in the playing 11 and Shreyas Iyer has scored a brilliant century and half-century in his debut match. However, for Kohli and Shreyas Iyer to get a place in Team India Playing 11, stand-in captain Ajinkya Rahane will have to be dropped from the team. With this, Mohammad Siraj is likely to replace Ishant Sharma in the squad for the final Test match.
