Amid the Ishan Kishan and Shreyas Iyer contract saga, Sachin Tendulkar made an intriguing Ranji Trophy remark


Sachin Tendulkar stated that playing in the Ranji Trophy allows national players to get back to basics while also raising the level of the domestic event.

Sachin Tendulkar, the renowned cricketer, said on Tuesday that competing in the Ranji Trophy allows national players to get back to basics while also boosting the domestic tournament. The BCCI recently made it necessary for centrally contracted players to play domestic red-ball cricket when not on national duty or in the NCA. Ishan Kishan and Shreyas Iyer were dropped from the BCCI’s central contract list after missing their state team’s Ranji Trophy games. “When India players play for their domestic teams, it improves the quality of play for young players and sometimes identifies new talent.”

“It also allows national players to occasionally rediscover the fundamentals,” Tendulkar wrote on X.

“Throughout my career, I was passionate about playing for Mumbai whenever the opportunity arose. Growing up, we had about 7-8 Indian players in our locker room, and it was a pleasure to play with them,” Tendulkar added.

The Ranji Trophy semi-finals have been captivating! @MumbaiCricAssoc’s batting revival helped them advance to the finals, but the other semi-final between Madhya Pradesh and Vidarbha is still up for grabs on the closing day.

Despite not being on national duty after quitting the South Africa tour in December for personal reasons, the 25-year-old Kishan did not play for Jharkhand throughout the Ranji Trophy season. He instead concentrated on preparations for the IPL with his Mumbai Indians franchise.

Iyer, on the other hand, did not appear for Mumbai’s Ranji quarterfinal against Baroda after being dropped from the Indian team after the second Test against England. He did, however, compete in Mumbai’s Ranji semifinal versus Tamil Nadu.

Tendulkar believes that the inclusion of top Indian players in state teams will increase interest in domestic tournaments.

“With top-tier players competing in home events, fans will gradually begin to follow and support their domestic clubs more closely. “It’s great to see the @BCCI giving domestic cricket equal priority.” Mumbai has qualified for the 48th Ranji Trophy final. The 41-time champions will face either Vidarbha or Madhya Pradesh, who are locked in a dramatic semifinal, in the summit game.

“The Ranji Trophy semi-finals have been enthralling! @MumbaiCricAssoc’s march into the finals was boosted by a magnificent batting revival, while the other semi-final is in the balance heading into the final day – Madhya Pradesh needs 90 runs to win, Vidarbha needs four wickets,” Tendulkar said.
