After being an understudy to Syed Kirmani, Bharath Reddy got his chance to represent India when the selectors surprisingly dropped Kirmani for the tour to England in 1979. He played in all the four Tests, doing a fairly efficient
job. He had eleven dismissals to set a record for an Indian wicketkeeper in England. He also toured Australia in 1977-78, Pakistan in 1978-79 and Australia and New Zealand in 1980-81, all as Kirmani's deputy. A more than capable bat, Reddy first made his mark when he led the Indian schools team to England in
1973. He was one of the mainstays for Tamil Nadu, captaining them for two seasons.
