BCCI not happy with Ishan Kishan (PTI)
Test cricket. The most difficult format of the game played between batsmen and bowlers. Only one match lasts for 5 days. The game changes in every session. But with time the game is getting faster. Now players are getting more attracted towards T20 cricket than Test cricket. The reason is clear, there is more money in it and people enjoy more in fours and sixes. T20 leagues are played all over the world and players spend a lot of money in them. But in India the scene is a bit opposite. The players here are not allowed to play in any other league other than IPL. But still there are many Indian players who are more attracted to IPL than Test or any other format. Players forget everything months in advance and start preparing for the IPL. But now BCCI has issued a new order to control these players.
BCCI unhappy with many players
A report has claimed that BCCI players are not happy with the attitude that they leave domestic cricket and start preparing for IPL months in advance. According to a report in Times of India, a BCCI source said that the players must play Ranji Trophy. It is reported that BCCI is not happy with the attitude of some players of Team India towards red ball cricket, especially Ranji Trophy. In the next few days, all the players will be informed by BCCI to play for their state team in Ranji Trophy. At least when he is not playing for the Indian team. Only those players who are unfit and recovering at the NCA will be exempted. The board is not very happy with some of the players who have already been in IPL mode since January.
Ishaan Kishan also targeted?
Recently, there was a huge uproar over Ishan Kishan not playing in Ranji. Ishaan was out of the team after taking rest in the middle of the South Africa tour. Since then he has not been able to return. Coach Rahul Dravid says the same thing every time that if Ishaan has to come back then he should play Ranji first. Since then, Jharkhand team has participated in many Ranji matches, but Ishaan was not seen even once. Hardik Pandya also has a similar attitude. Hardik was out of the World Cup 2023 due to injury. Since then many videos of his recovery have surfaced, but the news of his return is coming only in IPL. Hardik has not played Test cricket for years.

But now BCCI is in a mood to issue an ultimatum and it can be made clear to the players at any time that they will not be allowed to return to the team without playing domestic. In such a situation, the problems of young players who mostly focus on IPL may increase in the coming time.
