CM Jagan congrats Andhra player KS Bharat on debuting with Indian Cricket Team
The highly-anticipated first Test match between India and Australia is underway in Nagpur. This match holds special significance as two new players, KS Bharat and Suryakumar Yadav, are making their debuts for the Indian cricket team.
KS Bharat, a native of Vizag in Andhra Pradesh, has been named to the Indian team for the first time. Although he was previously included in the Indian squad for the 2021 Test series against New Zealand, he was not selected for the final team. He was also chosen for the recent Test series against Bangladesh, but was only used as a reserve player.
Bharat's debut has been met with excitement and support, including from Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy. In a tweet, the Chief Minister expressed his congratulations and best wishes for Bharat's debut match against Australia, noting the pride that the Telugu community feels in his achievements.
