IPL 2024: Ishan breaks silence on Ranji Trophy controversy, central contract snub after MI vs RCB

Published

Mumbai Indians wicketkeeper batter Ishan Kishan was in the news for all the wrong reasons before the IPL 2024. He refused to play Ranji Trophy in Jharkhand, and then BCCI didn’t offer him a central contract as a punishment.

Since then, he has returned to play for MI and has contributed to the franchise’s two wins. The champions were winless in the initial three games but won the next two matches.

After the Mumbai Indians clash against Royal Challengers Bengaluru, he was asked about the time away from cricket.
Ishan showed his true potential in the shortest format of the game, scoring 69 runs off just 34 balls to lay the perfect foundation for Mumbai Indians in the chase of 197 runs.

Speaking to the media, Ishan opened up on the controversial topics before the IPL 2024 begins.

Opening up on the saga, Ishan said: “I was practising. When I took time off from the game, people were talking a lot. Many things came on social media. But you should also realize that many things are not in the hands of the players.”

Ishan has brought about a big shift in his mindset during the break. He gave a deep insight into his thought process, especially about handling the low phases in his career.

“The only thing you can do is utilise the time properly. Also, the mindset to think about the previous Ishan Kishan, I would never leave a delivery in the first two overs even if they are bowling well. With time I have learnt that even 20 overs is a big game, you can take your time and you can go ahead. Even though we have lost matches, we want to work together as a team. Changes have come like even if I am not performing and if I know someone else is not performing, I talk to them. I want to know what they are thinking. So these are things which helped me in the break,” he further added.
