Iyer to Play Ranji Trophy Semi-Final Despite Controversy:

Amidst controversies surrounding his absence from the Ranji Trophy quarter-final and discussions about potential exclusion from the central contract by BCCI, cricketer Shreyas Iyer has made a significant decision. Despite reports of fitness concerns and subsequent NCA clearance, Iyer had initially refrained from participating in the Ranji Trophy quarter-final for Mumbai. Now, he has communicated to the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) about his intention to play in the upcoming semi-final match against Tamil Nadu, scheduled to commence on March 2.

Background on the Controversy:

Shreyas Iyer’s decision not to play in the Ranji Trophy quarter-final had raised eyebrows, especially after the NCA reported that he had no fresh injuries and was fit. This led to speculations about an alleged inconsistency in the information provided. BCCI was reportedly considering excluding Iyer, along with Ishan Kishan, from the central contract due to their perceived prioritization of T20 leagues over domestic cricket. Head coach Rahul Dravid and BCCI secretary Jay Shah have consistently emphasized the importance of prioritizing domestic cricket to the players.
