Since the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) opted to leave Ishan Kishan and Shreyas Iyer off of its most recent contract list, the cricket world has been agog with talk about them. This decision was made when it was discovered that both players declined to compete in the Ranji Trophy for their state teams, even though they were healthy and not on national service.

Kishan declined an invitation from the BCCI to participate in the Test series against England, citing personal reasons for requiring a vacation, which increased the excitement, according to a report from ESPNcricinfo. He did not, however, keep in touch with his local Jharkhand team or the National Cricket Academy; instead, he continued to practice on his own.

Iyer and Kishan’s hopes for the ICC T20 World Cup, which will be co-hosted by the US and the West Indies in June, are clouded by this dispute. Their ability in limited-overs cricket means that losing these central contracts and missing this tournament could have a major effect on their national careers, especially since Kishan is a recognized white-ball specialist and Iyer proved his mettle in the ODI World Cup.
