Ever since Ishan Kishan took a break from international cricket due to mental fatigue, his life turned upside down. The southpaw, who was in India's squad for the ODI World Cup 2023, is no longer in the mix of things across formats.

In fact, Ishan, who bagged a whopping INR 15.25 crore contract at the IPL mega auction 2022, has also lost his central contract from BCCI.

Ishan Kishan Opens Up About Team India Snub

In a recent interview with Indian Express, Ishan talked about how exactly he felt after the Team India snub. The Mumbai Indians (MI) star also claimed no one, barring his family and a few close people, understood what exactly he went through during the past few months.

"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," Ishan told Indian Express.

Further, Ishan also revealed how tough it was when he lost the BCCI central contract. In fact, he also admitted that he still thinks about the same, and it impacts him a lot.

"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 added.

To conclude, Ishan made a promise to himself, saying he will be playing for his state Jharkhand this year, and will be looking forward to performing in India's domestic competitions across formats.
