MS Dhoni told me the best way to keep wickets in England: KS Bharat

Meanwhile, ahead of the ongoing game, the youngster spoke to the Apex Council’s presenter. He said that during the IPL 2023, former India skipper MS Dhoni and himself had a conversation about how to keep wickets in England.

“Recently during the IPL I had a word with Mahendra,” Bharat told the Apex Council in an interview with Sanjana Ganesan at The Oval.

“He (talked about) his experiences keeping in England as well as what would work the best for any wicket-keeper.

“It was a very good conversation and there were a lot of insights from that.”

“It’s the awareness – the best example is MS Dhoni, the awareness he has in keeping is outstanding,” Bharat added.

“You need intent and passion to be a keeper, because keeping is a thankless job. You keep 90 overs in a Test day and you have to be concentrating ball by ball, so you have to accept the challenges and embrace it and be really passionate about contributing to the team.”
