Rishabh Pant has a tremendous record against Australia in Test cricket with 624 runs in 7 matches at a sublime average of 62.40.
Wicketkeeper batter KS Bharat failed once again with the bat and was dismissed for just 3 in the second innings of third Test match between India and Australia. Bharat, who made his debut in the opening Test match of Border-Gavaskar Trophy, has failed to impress with his batting skills so far in the three matches as fans started missing flamboyant Rishabh Pant. Bharat survived for only 8 balls on Day 2 at Holkar Cricket Stadium as Nathan Lyon breached his defence to hit the timber.
He has failed to create any impact with the bat and scored 57 runs in the five innings so far in his Test career.

“I am much better now and making some good progress with my recovery. Hopefully, with the grace of God, and the support of the medical team, I will be fully fit very soon,” the wicketkeeper-batter told IANS.
