BCCI Chief Selector Ajit Agarkar Was Furious With Shreyas Iyer

The item that has generated the most buzz over the last week is that Ishan Kishan and Shreyas Iyer have been left off of the BCCI's most recent annual contract list. Over the last year, the two stars have played a significant role in the BCCI system. They participated in significant occasions and, until recently, were members of the Indian cricket squad. Iyer played in the first two Test matches against England before being benched, while Ishan Kishan was the final member of the team to go to South Africa before taking a vacation.

The two's refusal to participate in domestic cricket is said to be the cause of their banishment. Following his hiatus, Kishan worked out with Hardik Pandya, but he was unable to play for his state side, Jharkhand, in Ranji Trophy matches. Shreyas Iyer said he was unfit after missing a Ranji Trophy match for his state team, Mumbai. On the other hand, the Indian Express said that the NCA's report on him was inconsistent.

Iyer allegedly attended a pre-IPL training with the Kolkata Knight Riders during this period, according to several sources. Iyer leads KKR as captain. Ajit Agarkar, the BCCI top selector, was reportedly 'furious' to learn that Iyer was attending an IPL camp while claiming to have a back issue, according to a story in the Revsportz. Regarding the final contract list, recommendations are made by the BCCI selectors.

In a statement, the BCCI noted that 'Shreyas Iyer and Ishan Kishan were not considered for the annual contracts in this round of recommendations.' The announcement covered the Senior Men's Team India yearly Player Contracts for the 2023–24 season, which runs from October 1, 2023, to September 30, 2024.

'The BCCI has recommended that all athletes give precedence to participating in domestic cricket during periods when they are not representing the national team,' it said.

Out of style When India's batter Shreyas Iyer returns to domestic play on Saturday, he will be driven to prove a point and provide a timely reminder of his skill set against Tamil Nadu in the Ranji Trophy quarterfinal in Mumbai, the record 41-time winners Mumbai. Iyer, who was cut from the Indian Test team and removed from the BCCI's contractual player list after he withdrew from the Ranji Trophy quarterfinal citing back and groin issues, has fully healed to go to Mumbai for the pivotal match.

Iyer would be crucial to Mumbai's plan, particularly while facing Tamil Nadu's strong spin bowling, which has been one of their main tools this year.
