Jay Shah discloses who decided not to include Shreyas Iyer and Ishan Kishan in central contracts.

Kishan and Iyer were dropped after failing to show up for local assignments despite a BCCI directive. After the ODI World Cup ended, Kishan had a long break and didn't return until the IPL, however Iyer did play for Mumbai in a few Ranji Trophy matches, including the semifinal and final. When it was discovered that Iyer had visited a Kolkata Knight Riders camp in Mumbai while his statemates were preoccupied with a Ranji Trophy match, Iyer was still the target of criticism.

Jay Shah discloses who decided not to include Shreyas Iyer and Ishan Kishan in central contracts.

BCCI secretary Jay Shah said that Ajit Agarkar, the chairman of selectors, alone decided to remove Ishan Kishan and Shreyas Iyer off the list of players under central contract, claiming that "nobody is indispensable".

 

Kishan and Iyer were dropped after failing to show up for local assignments despite a BCCI directive. After the ODI World Cup ended, Kishan had a long break and didn't return until the IPL, however Iyer did play for Mumbai in a few Ranji Trophy matches, including the semifinal and final. When it was discovered that Iyer had visited a Kolkata Knight Riders camp in Mumbai while his statemates were preoccupied with a Ranji Trophy match, Iyer was still the target of criticism. 


 

Check out the constitution. In a media briefing on Thursday at the BCCI headquarters in this city, he stated, "I am just a convener (of the selection meeting)." "Ajit Agarkar is the one who made the decision to remove Ishan Kishan and Shreyas Iyer from the central contracts list, even though they were not involved in domestic cricket."  My only responsibility is to execute. Additionally, new players like Sanju (Samson) have been added to the team. No one is infallible," he continued. Shah reiterated the Board's position, which is that Indian players must prioritise playing cricket in their home country.


 

In the days leading up to the contract rejection, Shah had stated that he would fully support the chief selector's decision to take any action against players who do not follow the Indian captain and team management's requirements for participation in domestic cricket. This was before the third Test match between India and England in February of this year. I did indeed speak with them. The reports had even been covered by the media "he said.


 

"Hardik (Pandya) even stated that he is prepared to play for the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy and the Vijay Hazare Trophy if the BCCI is considering me for white-ball cricket. Every gamer will be required to participate, regardless of their desire to do so," Shah went on. When talking about high scores in this year's IPL, Shah said that ultimately, it comes down to who is doing well and who can sustain performance as a player.


 

"Whoever does well in the IPL, such as Ishan Kishan, finds it tough to play for the Indian side, but he is a player for the Mumbai Indians. In addition, Shah disclosed details of his conversation with Kishan that took place after the Mumbai Indians' game against the Gujarat Titans.


 

"No, I didn't provide him any advice. He remarked, "I talk like that with all the players; it was just a friendly conversation that he should do well." Shah stated that there is no such plan, despite a few media stories indicating an increase in the match costs for national players in the nations. "In any case, we have raised the salary and provided incentives for Test cricket. In 2022, we had raised the salary by 100%," Shah continued.
