India’s wicket-keeper conundrum: Shastri, Karthik offer their thoughts for WTC23 final

Mumbai, May 25 (UNI) Former India coach Ravi Shastri believes uncapped youngster Ishan Kishan remains in the mix to challenge KS Bharat and take the crucial role of wicket-keeper for next month's ICC World Test Championship final against Australia, but experienced gloveman Dinesh Karthik thinks the choice is clear cut.
Injuries to key players, including first-choice wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant and back-up KL Rahul, has put the Indian setup in quite the dilemma ahead of the all-important one-off Test against Australia that commences at The Oval on June 7.
Bharat remains the incumbent after he was chosen to don the gloves for the recent Border-Gavaskar Test series and the 29-year-old gave a very good account of himself as wicket-keeper but failed to show his full prowess with the bat, as he managed just 101 runs from six innings in difficult conditions.
