After taking a break from international cricket, Kishan focused on training in Baroda with Hardik Pandya, who was recently announced as the new captain of the Mumbai Indians (MI) for the 2024 IPL season.

Ishan Kishan’s travel fatigue induced ‘break’

In a recent interview, Ishan Kishan explained his extended absence from international cricket, revealing that he was dealing with travel fatigue. Kishan considered it ‘normal’ to step away from domestic games for Jharkhand during his sabbatical.

“I was scoring runs and then I found myself on the bench. These things do happen in a team sport. But I experienced travel fatigue. It meant there was something wrong, I was not feeling well or right and so I decided to take a break. However, sadly, barring my family and few close people no one understood that,” Kishan told The 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.” He added.

“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. Fir toh aap international hi khelte (Then I could have continued playing for India),” Kishan explained.

Ishan Kishan’s feelings on losing the BCCI central contract

Ahead of the 2024 IPL season, Mumbai Indians star Kishan and Kolkata Knight Riders captain Shreyas Iyer were excluded from the BCCI’s central contracts list. Outgoing head coach Rahul Dravid explained that Kishan was unavailable for the England Test series and emphasized that the wicketkeeper-batter needs to play domestic cricket to make a comeback.

“I don’t want to be sad about anything. I’ll keep giving my best,” Kishan said when asked about losing his place, which was followed by BCCI’s central contact snub.
