Ishan Kishan has not made himself available even for Ranji Trophy – JSCA Secretary’s statement


Ishan Kishan is not a part of the Indian team at present. Recently, he had withdrawn his name from the series against South Africa citing mental fatigue. Soon after, the wicketkeeper-batsman faced controversies. After leaving the South Africa tour midway, Ishaan Kishan was seen on the sets of Kaun Banega Crorepati. After that, pictures of his holiday from Dubai also went viral on social media.

For this reason, Ishan Kishan was not even selected for the Afghanistan series. Amidst this controversy, there were reports that some officials of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) are not happy with Ishan Kishan’s attitude. However, head coach Rahul Dravid, while addressing the press, termed these reports as baseless and confirmed that Kishan was not available for selection and that is why he was not selected in the team.

Furthermore, Dravid also revealed that if Kishan makes himself available, he will play domestic matches for his state Jharkhand in the ongoing Ranji Trophy 2024 before joining the Indian team. At the same time, Jharkhand State Cricket Association (JSCA) Secretary Debasis Chakraborty has given important information regarding the availability of Ishan Kishan.

As quoted by India Today, the JSCA secretary said that the cricketer has not yet contacted the board regarding his availability in the Ranji games. Along with this, Chakraborty also ensured that if Ishan Kishan is available for selection, he will come straight into playing.

Let us tell you that Jharkhand team is currently playing a Ranji match against Maharashtra, the first day of which is being played in Pune, while Ishan is not a part of the announced setup. Before the start of India’s tour of England, Jharkhand will play another match against Services in Delhi, while the first Test against England will be played in Hyderabad from January 25.

Now it will be interesting to see whether the 25-year-old player makes himself available for the Ranji Trophy matches to make a comeback to Team India and even if that happens, will he be selected in the team for the England series, which is currently awaited. .
