Both Wriddhiman Saha and Rishabh Pant are in good condition, India batsman Hanuma Vihari said, and it will be 
tough call for team management to make as to who in the first Test against Australia will be the wicketkeeper. 
The comments from Vihari came after India’s three-day-night practice game against Australia  ended on Sunday in draw here at Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG).

Healthy competition is always good for the team, and I think we have good competition for every spot. It all depends on who they want to select from team management. I think both of them look in good shape, so it’s going to be a tough decision and a good headache, “Healthy competition is always good for the team and I feel, for every spot, we have good competition.
