Fans on Twitter react as wicketkeeper batter Ishan Kishan is likely to make his debut in the 4th Test against Australia as per reports. They weren’t happy with the development and said that it’ll be an unnecessary change going into the World Test Championship Final.
Ishan Kishan to make his debut for India in Tests – Reports
The Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2023 has given fans everything to cheer about. The battle between bat and ball has been staggering as both the teams have on sensational performances and have left no stone unturned to put each other under pressure.
After two enthralling wins in the first two games, India suffered a disappointing loss in the third Test in Indore. They were outplayed by the visitors, who won the third game by 9 wickets to make the series 2-1.
Be it with the bat or with the ball, Australia was better than India and marked their first win in the series. With this win, they also qualified for the World Test Championship Final.
The focus now shifts towards the final game of the series that will be played in Ahmedabad from 9th March. It’ll be an extremely crucial game for India considering their chances for the WTC Final. They would be hoping to rectify their mistakes and come back better in the last game.
With just one day remaining for the final Test of the series, it is learned as per reports on Indian Express that Ishan Kishan is likely to make his Test debut for India in Ahmedabad.
If the reports emerge to be true, Kishan will replace KS Bharat in the team. The right-hander hasn’t quite lived up to the expectations with the bat in the three games and it’s fair to say that team would be tempted to bring in someone who can score sone quick runs down the order, much like what Rishabh Pant used to do.

As Ishan Kishan is likely to make his debut for India in Tests as per the reports in 4th Test, fans on Twitter reacted to it. They said that it’s an unnecessary change and gave some mixed reactions. Here are some of them:
Yeah. Bharat is problem. Otherwise India would have won the last game. https://t.co/hhOswbQbudAdvertisement

Don't see this happening. Unless our players think they belong, they won't be able to give their best. And test cricket does test your worth in every way possible. https://t.co/RlONz9swYdAdvertisement

Well, after all the backing talks they replaced KL (rightly so) now replacing Bharat won't make sense because he's been a fantastic keeper especially with reviews and sharp catches, so I hope this turns out to be false tomorrow. https://t.co/LXj1uHA0bxAdvertisement

If true – ridiculously bad call. 1. Bharat is 10x the keeper Kishan is – on a turning pitch Kishan will struggle big time with the gloves.Advertisement
2. What is the point of having an incumbent keeper if you give him 3 games. So much for backing https://t.co/XnpffNXqY8

Why are people obsessed with performance of the wicketkeeper and bowlers? 🤦♂️
Fix the top order. Bharat is anyways here for few Tests only. #INDvsAUS https://t.co/AKA68xXmRP

Just play KL and make him keep instead of doing this. Shubman at five. https://t.co/DlYecE7WbU

I don't think it's a good idea…!!!
Wicket Keeping on turning tracks is not a joke. #Ishan also needs to work on his batting against spin. I hope it doesn't happen.Advertisement
Instead India can drop a pacer & play #SKY. https://t.co/NDjUSyZ2Tg

Not fair yaar .. Bharat batted poorly but kept well..
Won't take more than 2 balls for Lyon to dismiss Ishan https://t.co/n8rgLiow6T

Why KL Rahul can't keep Wickets?
Who knows that KL Rahul will start performing better at Middle Order?
In my Opinion he should take the Opportunity to Bat at Middle Order and keep Wickets in Test Cricket. https://t.co/NcAgFfHtTn

I see, More than KS Bharat being shit, This decision is an indication of Ahemdabad track being a good batting wicket.
