In addition to KS Bharat, Suryakumar Yadav made his Test debut after excelling in the game’s shorter formats.
All eyes are on Suryakumar Yadav and KS Bharat as they make their Test debuts now that the Border Gavaskar Trophy is officially underway. KS Bharat, a 29-year-old wicketkeeper, was selected for the Indian playing XI for the first Test against Australia as a replacement for team India’s regular wicketkeeper, Rishabh Pant.
Following his Test debut, Bharat had unwavering support from his family, wife, and coach J Krishna Rao. Rao arrived at the location in time to see the wicketkeeper’s career-defining moment since Bharat’s coach did not want to miss it when the 29-year-old received his first Test cap.
“It took a while for us to get it. I watched him receive the Test cap from none other than Cheteshwar Pujara in the stands, and that made me feel really pleased “According to a statement made by Rao, The Indian Express.
According to Krishna Rao, Bharat’s debut will inspire other young people.
Not just Bharat’s coach was present when the 29-year-old received his Test cap. His wife, sister, parents, and other family members were all in the stadium to share in the joyful occasion. His coach also thinks that having him on the Indian team will encourage and assist other young people in following their aspirations.
When discussing the same, Rao stated, “For the state cricket association, the players, coaches, and groundskeepers, it is undoubtedly a time to be proud of for the entire state of Andhra. Each and every one of us should be proud of this. For all of us, a long period has passed.”
“Every Andhra player is motivated by it because they can now work harder and elevate their efforts. Why can’t they represent the nation if Bharat can? Our state is quite small. The percentage of Andhra Pradesh players who represent the nation is extremely low. The state has advanced greatly as a result of this (Bharat’s debut), “Added he.
Bharat was only nine years old and from Andhra Pradesh when Rao took him under his wing. Bharat was introduced to wicketkeeping by his coach as well, and the 29-year-old is currently experiencing his big break.
