      Report: Ishan Kishan Declines BCCI’s Test Series Offer, Misses Out on Central Contract Benefits Alongside Shreyas Iyer

      Shreyas Iyer and Ishan Kishan not include in BCCI’s annual retainers after the two repeatedly ignore the Indian cricket board’s orders to participate in the ongoing Ranji Trophy season.

      But, it seems that around the time BCCI secretary Jay Shah sent a letter to centrally contract players not to prioritise the IPL over domestic cricket, Ishan Kishan was given a shot at redemption by the BCCI before Dhruv Jurel capitalise on his absence to carve out a heroic performance in Ranchi and help India claim the 5-match Test series vs England.

      Ishan Kishan last play for India in November 2023, in the home T20I series against Australia.

      In December 2023, midway through the tour of South Africa, Ishan Kishan pull out, reportedly citing mental health fatigue.

      Ishan Kishan thereafter miss the T20I contest against Afghanistan at home before discussion began over his possible return during the England Test series with the management not eager to continue with KL Rahul as their wicketkeeper-batter on spinning tracks.

      When Ishan Kishan was not pick for the series, India’s head coach Rahul Dravid explain that the youngster need to make himself available first and that he ought to show some game time to prove his eligibility.

      Rahul Dravid also said that the management has in constant touch with Ishan Kishan.

      Despite Rahul Dravid’s words, the Indian team management gave Ishan Kishan a shot at redemption, as per a report, offering him a way into the Test squad for the series against England.

      But the 25-year-old refuse it, saying that he wasn’t ready yet.

      As the report doesn’t specify the timing, it is likely that the Indian team made the request after KL Rahul was rule out of the 2nd Test match with the management concern about KS Bharat’s disappointing run of form with the bat.

      The 23-year-old show glimpses of his abilities in the 3rd Test, both with the bat and gloves, before scoring a match-winning 90 in Ranchi to help India seal the series.

      Dhruv Jurel’s maiden Test fifty help India reduce the first-innings deficit to 46 runs in the fourth Test before he score a patient 39 not out in the second innings to guide India to a five-wicket win.

      He was adjudge as the Player of the Match for his performance.
