IPL 2021: a team player who could be benched for the entire season
RCB – KS Bharat
Kona Srikar Bharat, known as KS Bharat, made an entry in the 2021 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) after being chosen by the IPL franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on its base price of 20 lakhs INR. Bharat was previously selected by Delhi Daredevils (now Delhi Capitals) in their squad, but has yet to make his debut in the T20 Extravaganza.
Meanwhile, the wicket-hitter’s chances of making his debut this year are also slim, with Bangalore’s outfit already fitted with two superb goalie-bats in the form of AB De Villiers and Josh Philippe. Much like the previous season, AB should be the first choice goalkeeper for RCB while Philippe can put on the gloves in his absence.
While KS Bharat may have to warm up the bench for the duration of the 2021 IPL, he will have the chance to learn a lot in the net and rub shoulders with the greats of the game, including Virat Kohli, Glenn maxwell and AB de Villiers.
