I took a break and I think it was normal.

He stated the reason why he refused to play the domestic matches with Indian Express“I took a break and I think it was normal. There is a rule that if you want to make a comeback you must perform in domestic cricket. It is as simple as that. Now, it was very different for me to play domestic cricket as it was not making any sense.

Not in a frame of mind to play Cricket 

 I was not in a frame of mind to play and that is why I took a break from international cricket. It doesn’t make sense that you take a break from international cricket and then you go and play domestic matches,”.

Yaar kya hoga gaya, kyu ho gaya,

He further added “It was depressing. Today I don’t want to say that everything was fine. It was not easy for me at all. You go through a lot. Mere dimag mey ye sab chalta raha ki yaar kya hoga gaya, kyu ho gaya, mere saath kyu (Questions like what happened, why me). All these things happened when I was performing,”

He expressed disappointment with how BCCI treated him while looking for rest with what happened to him while he was in form. 

I Experienced Travel Fatigue

However, Ishan Kishan has also revealed that he has experienced travel fatigue which was also the reason he took a break from International.

Why did BCCI Ignore Ishan Kishan from the T20 World Cup 2024?

The reason was simple and clear as water, Ishan’s underperformance, Also Sanju Samson and Rishabh Pant’s brilliant performance in the IPL 2024. 

He scored 320 runs from 14 innings at an average of 22.85 and a strike rate of 148.83. The brilliant performance of Rishabh Pant and Sanju Samson in the IPL led BCCI to consider Samson and Pant as their Wicket-Keeper Batters for the ICC Mens T20 World Cup 2024, which caused Ishan to get sidelined from the Campaign.
