The Wicketkeeper-batsman will cover for Wriddhiman Saha who just recovered from being positive in Covid-19 despite of his recovery the selection committee still wants Bharat to cover due to COVID-19 protocols and guidelines.


“He was added as cover for Saha considering he was still recovering from the virus and wicket-keeping is a specialised job. If Saha wasn’t fit in time, we would have needed a second keeper in the squad for the tour which is a three-month long one,”

The Board Of Control For Cricket in India (BCCI) had made a reliable plan for the national team before they go to The UK to participate the World Test Championship (WTC) final against New Zealand and the five-match Test series against England.

Players need to undergo three RT-PCR tests before assembling in Mumbai in charter planes.
The Indian players will also be administered the second COVID-19 vaccine by the UK health department.

India’s Squad: Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill, Mayank Agarwal, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli (Captain), Ajinkya Rahane (vice-captain), Hanuma Vihari, Rishabh Pant (wicket-keeper), R. Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Washington Sundar, Jasprit Bumrah, Ishant Sharma, Mohd. Shami, Md. Siraj, Shardul Thakur, Umesh Yadav, KL Rahul (subject to fitness clearance), Wriddhiman Saha (wicket-keeper; subject to fitness clearance)
