Earlier this month, Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) selected India’s new chief selector Sunil Joshi and the other selector Harvinder Singh who replaced Gagan Khods of the central zone. Joshi took over the reins of ex-chief selector MSK Prasad.

As the new members are included in the selection panel, there will surely be some changes in the strategy of selection. In the process, some new players might get chances while for some, the chances to get selected might get less.

In the current Indian team, the only position which is still in question of wicketkeeper-batsman.

After MS Dhoni has left that place, India had tried the youngster Rishabh Pant who has drastically failed with wicketkeeping. Pant’s injury gave KL Rahul to don the glove. Has India done experimenting with this position or still finding an option?

The answer is still not known.

Here, we have discussed the five wicket-keeper batsmen whom the new selection panel can give a chance in the foreseeable future. Let’s take a look.
