Bhardwaj said that it was Sunil Walson who called Mohit to attend the trial.

“Mohit got a call from Walson and was asked to go for the trial. I am keeping my fingers crossed. If he keeps calm, he can definitely impress them. Even though he might come across as an attacker from his latest record, he has a sound technique. On top of that, he is also a wicket-keeper,” the coach said.
