The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) walked the talk and decided to drop Shreyas Iyer and Ishan Kishan's central contract on Wednesday. The decision came after BCCI secretary Jay Shah sent a strong-worded letter to centrally contracted players to participate in India's premier domestic competition – Ranji Trophy – if the player is not unfit or on national duty.

But Kishan and Iyer ignored the BCCI diktat which resulted in the termination of their BCCI contract. So now the question arises what next for Ishan and Shreyas given both players are part of big franchises in the Indian Premier League (IPL)?


Will Ishan Kishan get a chance in the World Cup?

With India set to select a squad for the ICC T20 World Cup 2024 based on IPL 2024 performance, Ishan Kishan can catch the eyeballs of the selectors by displaying an exceptional show while turning up for Mumbai Indians.

25-year-old Kishan returned to competitive cricket in the DY Patil T20 series after taking a break from cricket during the South Africa series.

However, it will be challenging for the Jharkhand cricketer to get back to BCCI central contract. It has been learned that BCCI won't include Kishan if he even qualifies for the pro-rata criteria.

How can Shreyas Iyer's omission be even bigger than Kishan's?

The Indian team management lost faith in Shreyas Iyer during the India vs England Test series. Iyer has been an integral part of India's scheme of things last year. When he was out of the team due to injury and even missed the IPL 2023, Iyer was drafted straight into India's Playing 11 during the Asia Cup.

He even proved his mettle in the ICC ODI World Cup 2023 by accumulating 468 runs, hitting two hundred and three half-centuries.

The 29-year-old Mumbai batter was given a long rope in the Indian team despite a lackluster performance in South Africa. He eventually lost his place in the Indian team.

However, Shreyas Iyer being the captain of the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) franchise, could come to reckoning on the back of a superb IPL 2024 outing.

He is also named in the Mumbai squad for the Ranji Trophy semi-final. He missed Mumbai's quarterfinal game owing to a groin injury but National Cricket Academy doctor Nitin Patel ruled that he did not have such an injury.
