Ishan Kishan and Shreyas Iyer, two cricketers from India, haven’t been doing so well lately. Ever since Kishan opted out of joining the South Africa series earlier this year, he hasn’t had a chance to play for India. Meanwhile, Iyer got dropped from the India squad for the last three Test matches against England. They were supposed to play in the Ranji Trophy, a big domestic cricket tournament, but they didn’t show up, even though they were told they had to.

Now, it seems like they might get in trouble for it. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) might not include them in the list of players who get special contracts for the next season. This is because they didn’t follow the rules about playing in the Ranji Trophy.

“The selectors, led by Ajit Agarkar, have almost finalised the list of centrally-contracted players for the 2023-24 season too, which the BCCI will announce soon. Kishan and Iyer are likely to be excluded from that list, as both haven’t been playing domestic cricket despite the BCCI’s diktat to do so,” someone familiar with the situation shared with the media.

Kishan didn’t play any games for his team, Jharkhand, in the Ranji Trophy this season. Iyer did play one game for Mumbai, but then he said he had back pain and couldn’t play in the next important match, even though the team’s doctor said he was okay.

Just before the third India vs. England Test match in Rajkot, the BCCI secretary, Jay Shah, warned players that they have to play in the Ranji Trophy matches, or there will be consequences.

“All contracted players have been told on phone and I’ll be writing to them too. If chairman of selectors, coach & captain want you to play red-ball cricket then you gotta play. ‘Nakhre Nahi Chalenge’ (no tantrums). And as far as Ishan Kishan is concerned, he is young, I am not saying this specifically about him as it will be applicable for all the players uniformly,” Jay Shah said.

“Everyone will have to play, otherwise, the chairman of the selection committee has given me his suggestions and I am going to give him a free hand to let him take his own calls freely,” he added.
