There is a consensus that a strict policy needs to be adhered to so that young players don't make 'playing IPL to IPL' a habit

After repetitive warnings Kishan didn't joined in Ranji -

Ishan Kishan, a wicketkeeper-batter who represents Jharkhand in domestic cricket, did not participate in the final round of matches that began on Friday. This decision is likely to cause a rift with the BCCI.

The BCCI was compelled to impose a minimum number of Ranji Trophy games on players for them to be eligible for the IPL's auction pool because of Kishan's unwillingness to play first-class cricket and his only emphasis on the IPL.

In addition, Deepak Chahar and Shreyas Iyer are not participating in the current final round of matches, which began at various locations. However, Iyer is experiencing problems with his groin and lower back.

It was particularly instructed to Kishan, Chahar, and Iyer that they would represent their respective state teams in first-class cricket. Kumar Kushagra continued to keep wickets for Jharkhand while Kishan was away.

In their final round encounter, Jharkhand, who have only managed one victory and ten points from six games thus far, takes on Rajasthan at home.

The cricket board is not happy with Kishan's behavior of missing match after match since returning halfway through the national team's South Africa trip, citing "travel fatigue".

Particularly after it was discovered that, while his state team was placed near the bottom of the group A table in Ranji, he was training in Baroda with his new Mumbai Indians captain, Hardik Pandya.
Everyone agrees that stringent regulations must be followed to prevent young players from developing the habit of "playing IPL to IPL."

Secretary Jay Shah announced in Rajkot on Wednesday that India's centrally contracted players will have to participate in Ranji Trophy matches for their state teams and that the BCCI will not accept any justifications for this.

Shah said that if a player disobeys orders from the team management, selectors chairman Ajit Agarkar will have the freedom to decide on his own.

"They have been informed on the phone already and I'm going to write letters as well that if your chairman of selectors, your coach, and your captain are asking for it then you will have to play red-ball cricket," Shah told the media.
