KL Rahul Exempted from Wicket-Keeping Duty: says Dravid

KL Rahul will not be the wicketkeeper for India during the five-Test series against England, which commences on Thursday in Hyderabad, as confirmed by India coach Rahul Dravid. One of KS Bharat or Dhruv Jurel, uncapped, will assign the keeping mitts.

India’s most recent Test series was in South Africa in December and January, and Rahul was the wicketkeeper. But Dravid said that the conditions at home meant a more specialized keeper was needed.

Dravid’s Decision

“Rahul will not play as a wicketkeeper in this series, and we made that clear when we picked him,” Dravid said on Tuesday in Hyderabad. “These are the other two wicketkeepers we chose. Rahul did a great job for us in South Africa and was a big reason why we tied the series.”

“But considering five Test matches and playing in these conditions the selection will be between the two other keepers we have.”

Bharat’s Stint & Kishan’s Break

Bharat served as India’s wicketkeeper in the home series against Australia in February and March 2023, as well as in the World Test Championship final held in June of the same year. This suggests that Bharat had been the preferred wicketkeeper for the team during these significant matches, indicating a consistent role in the squad.

Following the home series and the World Test Championship final, Ishan Kishan took on the wicketkeeping duties during the two-Test series in the West Indies. However, the passage notes that Ishan Kishan is currently on a break from international cricket.

This implies that Kishan is temporarily away from the international cricket scene, potentially due to rest, personal reasons, or other factors. As a result, Bharat might be reassuming the wicketkeeping responsibilities in the absence of Kishan.
