India's cricket star Shreyas Iyer expressed his disappointment over 'lack of communication' and unfavorable decisions impacting his career following last year's ODI World Cup. Despite ending as the third highest run-scorer for India, Iyer found himself omitted from the BCCI's central contract. He believes his exclusion was due to a perceived prioritization of the IPL over domestic cricket.

While wicketkeeper-batter Ishan Kishan entirely missed domestic cricket early in the year, Iyer participated in several Ranji Trophy games. Notably, he played a pivotal role in Mumbai's semifinal and final matches, showcasing his determination with an impressive 95-run inning against Vidarbha.

Iyer, who underwent back surgery in April 2023, has been training vigorously at the National Cricket Academy. He revealed his introspective journey, stating, 'The war is won outside the field, not on the field.' His resilience and commitment shine as he aims for future success in both the Ranji Trophy and IPL.
