K S Bharat wicket keeper batsman

Recommended Posts

Bharat seems to be the wicket keeper ,selectors have in radar in future.


He is now a regular for the India A team .He was the first choice wk for the A tour of England & Pant was added only after his match winning innings in the odi series.


He had performed reasonably well. He had 10 caught behind in last game against South Africa A and also score a 60 with 6 sixes.

Kona Srikar Bharat is the only wicket-keeper with a Ranji Trophy triple century -- a 311-ball 308 for Andhra against Goa in the 2014-15 season. To carry his bat through an innings means much more to the 23-year-old than the milestones. A Test cap would be the ultimate prize though.


His tally last season was 22 dismissals and 541 runs, spiced up by centuries against Baroda and Gujarat. Satisfying it should be since they were garnered in the Elite set against high-flyers such as Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya, Rush Kaleria, Ramesh Powar and Yusuf Pathan.

Born on 3rd October, 1993 in Vishakhapatnam Andhra Pradesh, Kona Srikar Bharat is a 23 year old Indian cricketer who plays as a wicket keeper batsman for Andhra cricket team in domestic cricket. He probably became the first wicket-keeper batsman to score a triple hundred in the history of Andhra Cricket association and India as well in February 2015

India A batted Australia A into a corner on the third day of the second unofficial Test in Alur. They lead of 159 came on the back of KS Bharat's 106, and his various partnerships with the lower order that meant India made 205 for the last five wickets, finishing eventually with 505 in reply to Australia's 346. Bharat's century was India's first of the series, and the innings was at its peak during his eight-wicket stand of 113 with Kuldeep Yadav, who batted 112 balls for his 52.



The pair were in full control after they'd both been dropped off part-time legspinner Marnus Labuschagne when the lead was slim. Kuldeep then begun dominating the stand, looking calm and assured as Australia switched their bowlers around constantly. While the innings was studded with boundaries, it was an aggressive one in approach, with the footwork sorted the whole way through against pace and spin.



It gave Bharat the license to play the boundary strokes at the other end and he picked up 12 fours and a six during his forage. Bharat's most productive strokes were the hook and the cover drive, both of which were a consequence of Australia's struggle to hold up a constant strategy. The seamers, particularly Brendan Doggett, were all over the place against Bharat and on a slow pitch, he cashed in on their offerings.

Against spin, he was more content playing with a straight bat, often in defence, and rarely got out of the crease to manufacture shots. There wasn't much need for it in any case, with Australia's spread out fields offering many easy run-scoring avenues.

good option but should persist with Pant till the end of WI series to see how he goes .... he can only improve ::cantstop:
I don't think Pant will be dropped.
He has already streaked his hair and started to behave obnoxiously to get into the good books of Mr. Virat Anushka Sharma.

I am utterly shocked :) Can we include vijay devarkonda as opening batsman 

I also have to wash my sins in the Godavari for recently criticizing Mithali Raj as well :)


Changed my mid since some of her interviews :)
