Wicketkeepers – Wriddhiman Saha / Parthiv Patel, Dinesh Karthik
India has always named two wicketkeepers whenever they go on an overseas tour to keep one extra option at hand always.
Saha has been India’s best keeper in the longest format but he is currently suffering for a finger injury which he suffered during the IPL.
Because of that he had missed the final Test against South Africa and also the one-off Test against Afghanistan. In that case Dinesh Karthik will automatically be the number one choice moreover because of his recent form with the bat.
If there is even a single doubt with Saha’s injury, he might not be selected for the tour and in his place Parthiv Patel might be allowed to travel with the team.
