IND vs AUS 3rd Test: India wicket-keeper batsman KS Bharat said on Monday that it was not impossible to play on the wickets available so far in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy but the batsmen have to rely on their defence.
Bharath, who has been in the Test squad for the past 12 months, finally gets a chance to debut in the ongoing series as Rishabh Pant recovers from an injury sustained in a car accident in December. Bharath impressed with his wicketkeeping in the first two Tests and played a morale-boosting knock during Australia’s chase of 115 in Delhi.
Sent in to bat ahead of Ravindra Jadeja chasing a small target, Bharat played an aggressive innings of 23 runs off 22 balls with three fours and a six. Bharat said, “I enjoyed what I did in Delhi. My job is to keep things simple. You have to believe in your defence, it’s not impossible to play on this wicket. If you rely on your shot play, your defence, then definitely the batsmen have a chance to score runs.
