Watch as wicketkeeper KS Bharat gets ready for spinners before the third Test between India and Australia in Indore

Watch: Wicket-keeper KS Bharat prepares for spinners ahead of third India-Australia Test in Indore


Delhi, India: One can easily predict how the pitch will behave during the third India-Australia Test, which begins on Wednesday at the Holkar Stadium in Indore, by watching wicketkeeper Kona Srikar Bharat sweat it out behind the wickets, primarily for spin bowlers.

The BCCI made it abundantly clear in a video that it shared on Twitter on Tuesday that the Indore track will be a major turning point.

The way that @KonaBharat does it is safe! #TeamIndia | #INDvAUS | @mastercardindia — BCCI (@BCCI) 1677588235000 Bharat, who was impressive behind the stumps in the first two Tests, was seen performing various drills to confront India's high-quality spinners, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, and R Ashwin.

He was required to practice low bounce, turning, and faster deliveries by the coaching staff, which can confuse not only the batters but also the wicketkeeper behind them. In a way, it will also assist him in snatching at the quick and faint edges that are approaching.

In the Delhi Test, Bharat also made a nice cameo as India chased 115. He hit three fours and a six for an offensive 23 from 22 balls.

Images from the training session that #TeamIndia held in Indore ahead of the third Test match against Australia... — BCCI (@BCCI) 1677571964000 On Monday, Bharat spoke with media representatives and stated: I thoroughly enjoyed my time in Delhi. It was my job to keep things simple. The wickets are not impossible to play; all you need to do is support your defense. If you put in the effort and support your defense, there is definitely room for batters to score."

With Ashwin and Jadeja at work, Bharat has a difficult time keeping wickets.

They are exceptional spinners. It's hard to keep, but playing domestic cricket for so long has helped."

With Rishabh Pant still recovering from injuries he sustained in a car accident in December, Bharat finally got to make his Test debut after being in the team for the past year.
