New Delhi. For the last few weeks, there has been a lot of speculation regarding the place of some players in Team India; One of them is Ishan Kishan. Ishan has been away from action since November last year. He had withdrawn midway from the South Africa tour citing mental health. After this he was seen partying in Dubai.
Last week, Team India head coach Rahul Dravid was unhappy with the repeated questions asked on Ishan Kishan’s unavailability. He had said that if Ishaan wants to make a comeback in Team India, he will have to play domestic cricket. Despite this, Ishaan was not seen playing in the Ranji Trophy matches for his home team Jharkhand. After a few days, such a report also came that he has started preparing for IPL with Hardik and Krunal Pandya in Baroda.
BCCI will give notice to players
BCCI is not liking this attitude of Ishan Kishan. He is angry with the players giving preference to IPL over domestic cricket. According to a report in Times of India, BCCI is preparing to issue a notice to all the players for participating in Ranji Trophy. BCCI’s thinking is clear that if the players are not injured then they will have to play domestic cricket. A BCCI source has told the newspaper that some players have already "ipl mode" Are in, due to which the board is not happy.
If not injured then will have to play Ranji Trophy
The source told TOI, "In the next few days, a notice will be sent by BCCI to all the players and they will be told that if they are not on national duty and do not have any kind of injury then they will have to play Ranji Trophy. Only those players who are either unfit or recovering from their injuries in NCA will be exempted. The Indian Cricket Board is already unhappy with some of the players who have been in IPL mode since January.
