Kona Srikar Bharat was not a wicketkeeper at the start of his career. He started keeping wickets at the age of 19. He played his first-class game against Kerala in 2012.

K S Bharat did not allow the poor start to his batting to get on him as he accumulated runs in first-class cricket. This led to the national team call-ups but failed to get into the playing XI. In the meanwhile, he was signed by Royal Challengers Bangalore which allowed him to shine and make a statement. Following his fine performance, the management rewarded him with the test cap in 2022. He made his debut against Australia in a bilateral series at Nagpur.
