The announcement of the annual contract has been one of the major topics that have been trending. Even though the ousting of some big players has been a major thing, it is the axing of Shreyas Iyer and Ishan Kishan which has been a story to be told. The two talented batters have been in the scheme of things in international cricket for a long time now. They were even part of the concluded 2023 ODI World Cup as well. It seemed like both of them would be the biggest prospects going forward.

Though we haven’t seen the likes of Ishan Kishan in domestic cricket, Shreyas Iyer was in the playing squad for the semi-final of the Ranji Trophy. Iyer still has a chance to prove himself against Tamil Nadu in the current fixture. There might be a case that it is too late for him to get back into the mix, but at least we are seeing him following the directive. He will also be seen leading the Kolkata Knight Riders(KKR) side in the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) season as well.

The secrets are revealed

There have been a lot of speculations about Iyer being excluded from the contract completely. We all thought that it was due to ignoring the directive of the Indian Cricket Board, but it seems like there is more to the topic. According to some reports, it was said that he had been attending the KKR camp especially while suffering a back injury. This had made the chief selector Ajit Agarkar furious. With these stories, it seems clear that there is more to the story than denying to play domestic cricket.

This is a tough time for Iyer who at first was one of the upcoming senior prodigies in the side. It seems like he will have to do a lot to get back into the thick of things. There is still a lot of cricket left in the season and Iyer will be hoping to give his best performances. The story of Kishan and Iyer will be something that will keep everyone curious about why they were excluded and what they will have to do to get back into action.
