In the latest central contract list of the BCCI, there are a few noteworthy changes as compared to the previous one. While some players have got a promotion, the others have been demoted.

However, a few talented Indian cricketers were completely ignored. There are some names that deserved to be included. So which are the players who deserved to be in either of the four categories? Here are five players who deserved a central contract.

1) KS Bharat

KS Bharat is currently one of the most talented keeper-batters in the country. Be it in the domestic circuit, or the Indian T20 league, he has already shown glimpses of his potential. Besides, the 28-year-old was recently a part of the Indian squad as well.

He was a substitute gloveman for India during the Test series against New Zealand at home. Bharat has scored 4289 first-class runs at an average of 36.65. He was impressive for Bangalore during the Indian T20 league in 2021.
