Report Reveals BCCI Selectors’ Unhappiness over Ishan Kishan’s Training with Hardik Pandya

Indian cricket has been all over the news for quite some time now. The board of cricket control in India recently revealed the central contract of 30 players for the upcoming season.

However, BCCI axed two Indian players, Ishan Kishan and Shreyas Iyer, from the Central contract, although they were regular members of Team India across the three formats for the past two years.

In the previous central contracts of the BCCI, Iyer was placed in the Grade B slab, while Kishan was placed in the Grade C slab. While Iyer received an annual fee of Rs 3 crore besides his match fees, Kishan got Rs 1 crore from BCCI as part of their contact.

After being axed from the Central contract, Ishan Kishan and Shreyas Iyer were also deprived of many perks that a player gets along with the contract, like insurance cover,use of NCA, etc.

They were axed as both players, even after getting dropped from the national team, did not play domestic cricket, in spite of BCCI’s directives, which say that “If a player is not playing international cricket or is not a part of India’s squad, it is mandatory for all the centrally contracted players to play domestic cricket for their respective states.”

According to various reports, the BCCI selectors were unhappy with the recent behavior of both Ishan Kishan and Shreyas Iyer towards their professional careers, as Kishan was training with Pandya during a break while Iyer attended a pre-IPL camp with the Kolkata Knight Riders, where he missed the quarterfinal match for Mumbai.
