Former India chief coach Ravi Shastri feels KS Bharat would be the "obvious choice" for the wicketkeeper's role in the World Test Championship final against Australia to be played in England next month. Shastri said since Bharat had kept wickets during the Border-Gavaskar series earlier this year, he expected Bharat to get the management's nod ahead of Ishan Kishan.
"You have to see who's a better keeper. Is it Bharat or Kishan? Now, the fact that Bharat was given a run against Australia, where he played all the Tests, I think he would be the obvious choice to go with," Shastri said. "See, that's another tight one [decision]. Now, if two spinners are playing, then you would want Bharat to play," Shastri added.
