The recent buzz in the news revolves around the omission of Ishan Kishan and Shreyas Iyer from the latest annual contract list by BCCI, sparking discussions in the cricket community. Both players have been integral to BCCI’s plans over the past year, participating in significant events and representing the Indian cricket team until recently. Kishan was part of the South Africa tour squad before taking a break, while Iyer featured in the first two Tests against England before being dropped.

Their exclusion is attributed to their reluctance to engage in domestic cricket activities. Kishan, despite training with Hardik Pandya during his break, missed Ranji Trophy matches for Jharkhand. On the other hand, Iyer skipped a Ranji Trophy game for Mumbai, citing fitness concerns, although reports from the NCA contradicted his claims.

There are reports indicating that Iyer attended a pre-IPL camp for Kolkata Knight Riders, where he serves as captain, during this period. This development reportedly left BCCI chief selector Ajit Agarkar “furious,” as Iyer had complained of a back problem but was participating in the IPL camp. Ultimately, the BCCI selectors are responsible for determining the final contract list.

Shreyas Iyer, who finds himself out of favor in the Indian team, is now driven to showcase his abilities and make a statement as he returns to domestic cricket action. He has fully recovered from groin and back issues and will play a crucial role for Mumbai in the Ranji Trophy semifinal against Tamil Nadu. Iyer’s presence will be pivotal, particularly against Tamil Nadu’s formidable spin attack, which has been a key asset for them this season.
