The Indian team is going through a few changes before it’s big match. Indian skipper Virat Kohli on Tuesday confirmed that wicket-keeper Wriddhiman Saha has been given the nod to keep wickets ahead of Rishabh Pant in the three-match Test series against South Africa starting from Wednesday (October 2). Kohli also confirmed that Ravichandran Ashwin will be coming back into the playing XI for the series opener against the Proteas in Visakhapatnam. Pant has been suffering from a dip in form since the ICC World Cup 2019. While the young southpaw looked in decent touch during the quadrennial event, his performances post the showpiece tournament has been dismal, to say the least.
“Wriddhiman Saha will keep for us in this Test series,” said Kohli in the pre-match press conference on Tuesday when asked who will be the wicket-keeping choice for India in the three-match series against the Faf du Plessis-led South Africa
