In a surprising turn of events, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has shaken up the cricketing world by axing some prominent players from its central contracts for the upcoming season. Thus, the decision saw the exclusion of nine players. Also, veterans like Shikhar Dhawan and Yuzvendra Chahal have not made it to the annual contracts.

Adding to the surprise, BCCI has decided to omit rising stars Ishan Kishan and Shreyas Iyer from the central contracts. The duo’s disregard for BCCI’s request to participate in domestic cricket has led to their exclusion. Therefore, the board signaled a firm stance on player priorities.


Reasons Behind The Decisions

The reasons behind the axing vary, from disciplinary issues to poor form. Players like Ajinkya Rahane, Cheteshwar Pujara, Umesh Yadav, and Deepak Hooda have also been out of the contract list for various reasons, including lack of contention for the national team. The BCCI’s decision to axe several big names from its central contracts reflects the evolving nature of Indian cricket. And the board’s commitment to performance and discipline. As fans eagerly await the next season, all eyes will be on how these players respond to this setback and carve out their paths in the cricketing landscape.


High Profile Exclusions

Among the high-profile exclusions are Shikhar Dhawan and Yuzvendra Chahal, both stalwarts of the Indian cricket team. Dhawan’s absence from the national team for over a year has led to his contract being terminated. At the same time, Chahal’s declining form and advancing age have played a significant role in his exclusion.


BCCI’s Statement

Ishan Kishan Not In Team

In a statement, BCCI emphasized the importance of players prioritizing domestic cricket when they do not represent the national team. This stance underscores the board’s commitment to nurturing talent and fostering a solid domestic cricket ecosystem as the cricketing world absorbs these developments. Therefore, it raises questions about the future of these players and the dynamics within the Indian cricket team. With new talent emerging and established players facing challenges. Thus, the upcoming season promises to be an exciting one filled with opportunities and uncertainties.
