Ravi Shastri chose Shubhaman Gill as the opener in partnership with Rohit Sharma and chose KL Rahul as the second choice. Also, the selection of KS Bharat as the first choice wicket keeper is something to be happy about. Bharat from Ambedkar Konaseema district in Andhra Pradesh. He is the wicket keeper of the Andhra team in Deshwali. Bharat has a good understanding of Indian pitches by playing in Ranjis. With that intention, Ravi Shastri was voted as the wicket keeper. He also selected Ishan as the second choice keeper.
