Why Kishan Ishan Is Not There In The East Zone Squad For Duleep Trophy 2023?

The busy international calendar and then the Indian Premier League have kept the young Indian wicket-keeper Ishan Kishan occupied for a long time and he is continuously playing cricket and traveling with the team. The southpaw will now take part in team India on this West Indies tour and for this, he has been there to National Cricket Academy. On the West Indies tour, team India will play two Tests, three ODIs, and five T20Is. The tour will start on July 12.

Ishan Kishan is consistently playing every series for India during 2023. Starting from the ODIs against Sri Lanka in January and extending up to the recent World Test Championship final against England last week, he has been a part of India’s Test, ODI, and T20I squads. He also participated in the entire season of the Indian Premier League for the Mumbai Indians team while juggling his international commitments.

Indian squad is likely to fly for West Indies in the first week of July and therefore Ishan Kishan can’t play in the Duleep Trophy for East Zone

A source close to Ishan Kishan informed News18 and said, “Ishan has had a long international calendar and absolutely no breaks in between. Even the ongoing little time away from cricket is short-lived as he will be heading to NCA next week to train. He was picked in the WTC final squad as a reserve wicket-keeper and going by that, he is likely to retain his spot in the Test squad for the West Indies series. There was no window for him to participate in the Duleep Trophy fixture and the question of ignoring or having no interest in the tournament doesn’t arise because there is no window,” says a source close to the youngster.”

The source also said that there is no truth that Ishan Kishan does not want to play in Test Cricket or any domestic cricket.

“Like every youngster, he too wants to play all three formats for India and has been training non-stop for that. There is no question of him not being interested or serious about red ball competitions,” adds the source.
