'This is the only thing...': Chopra hopes IPL can revive Ishan's career

NEW DELHI: Former India opener

Aakash Chopra

reckons the upcoming IPL will be a perfect opportunity for

Ishan Kishan

to revive his career after BCCI excluded him from the central contract list for 2023-2024.
The 25-year-old Kishan did not turn up for Jharkhand throughout the team's campaign in

Ranji Trophy

despite not being on national duty since leaving from the tour of South Africa in December last, citing personal reasons.

"Ishan Kishan will be hungry, as he has not got a central contract. This is the only thing he is playing. What else is he playing?" Chopra said in his YouTube video.
Chopra also talked about Kishan's absence from the England Test series and emphasised that if he makes good use of IPL, he will have an opportunity to progress in his career.

"Either he has himself opted not to play, or he won't be selected now. So this is his chance. If you make the IPL your own, you have chances of going forward. Then there is, of course, Wankhede's flat pitch. The ball will come nicely onto the bat and go far," Chopra added.
While announcing the central contracts for 2023-24 on February 28, the BCCI once again advised all India cricketers to play domestic games when not on national duty.
"Please note that
