As per the report, Shreyas Iyer To Play Semi-Finals of Ranji Trophy For Mumbai Amid Central Contract Abolishment Rumors

The cricketers of team India, Shreyas Iyer and Ishan Kishan, were making headlines after reports claimed that BCCI would abolish their central contract because they prioritised IPL over international and domestic cricket.

Last time, Ishan Kishan was featured in the T20I series against Australia just after the ODI World Cup. He was also part of the India squad that played two Test match series against South Africa, but he asked for a break, citing mental fatigue.

Shreyas Iyer was omitted from the squad of team India for the last three Tests against England and had opted out of Mumbai’s Ranji Trophy quarterfinal against Baroda citing back pain. However, according to the report, Shreyas Iyer will be playing in the Ranji Trophy semi-final for Mumbai.

Earlier, the secretary of BCCI, Jay Shah, warned the centrally contracted and India ‘A’ cricketers over non-participation in domestic cricket, citing that a move like that from them to prioritise IPL over domestic cricket would have severe implications.
