Rishabh Pant Not Playing IND vs AUS WTC Final

Unfortunately, India will be playing the much-awaited the ICC World Test Championship (WTC) final 2023 encounter against Australia without their premier wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant at the Kennington Oval in London starting from 7 June, 2023. India have managed to win 10 out of their 18 Test matches in this WTC 2021-23 cycle. The Indian team will also desperately want to end their 10-year long wait to win an ICC trophy.

IND vs AUS: Why is Rishabh Pant Not Playing Today’s India vs Australia WTC Final match? Who is India Wicket Keeper?

The Rohit Sharma-led India Test team will be taking the field in the IND vs AUS WTC Final 2023 starting from Wednesday without their premier batsman Rishabh Pant who is currently recovering from a career-threating accident. Earlier, at the start of 2023 calendar year, the wicket-keeper batsman met with a horrendous car accident and thankfully, he came out of danger. The southpaw is suffering from multiple injuries and it is not clear when he will be making a comeback to competitive cricket. His absence is a massive setback for the Indian team as Pant has smashed a total of 868 runs from 12 Test matches in the WTC 2021-23 cycle having an impressive average of over 43 that includes a couple of centuries and five half-centuries.

On the other hand, Rishabh Pant also managed to score his maiden Test hundred at The Oval against England during the 2018 Test series. He has an incredible record against Australia in the longer format of the game having racked up a total of 620 runs from 12 Test matches at a brilliant average of 62 that comprises of 2 fifties and 1 hundred. In his absence, India is very much likely to play KS Bharat as the wicket-keeper batsman in this summit clash against Australia.
