Amid speculation surrounding Ishan Kishan's commitment to cricket, the wicketkeeper-batsman has been seen training diligently in Baroda. Stationed at the Reliance Stadium for the past few weeks, Kishan has been refining his skills at the Kiran More Academy, alongside fellow cricketers like the Pandya brothers - Hardik and Krunal. While details about his return to action remain undisclosed, Kishan's absence from competitive cricket since November last year has sparked discussions about his future.

Despite national coach Rahul Dravid's advice to participate in games for consideration in national selection, Kishan has yet to make a comeback. His absence from Jharkhand's upcoming Ranji game further fuels speculation about his readiness for competitive cricket. Questions also arise about the impact of his continued absence on the BCCI's evaluation for central contracts. Currently in Grade C with an annual retainership of Rs 1 crore, Kishan's absence may have implications for his future opportunities.

Coach Dravid emphasizes that the decision to return to cricket rests with Kishan himself. While discussions continue, Kishan's earliest opportunity to play may come during the IPL in March-May. As the Indian team selection for the last three Tests approaches, it is evident that Virat Kohli will not be part of the squad due to personal reasons, as previously indicated.
