Here’s a look at the complete list of changes in BCCI’s annual player contracts for the 2023–24 season from the 2022–23 season

New additions: Young opening batter Yashasvi Jaiswal, along with the likes of IPL 2023 stars like Rinku Singh, Tilak Varma, Shivam Dube, Ravi Bishnoi, Jitesh Sharma, and Mukesh Kumar, were the new additions to the BCCI's annual player contracts list. In addition to them, pacers Prasidh Krishna and Avesh Khan and batters Rajat Patidar and Ruturaj Gaikwad are also included in the list. Except for Jaiswal, all the other 10 players are part of Grade C.
Moved to higher grade: Pacer Mohammed Siraj, KL Rahul, Shubman Gill, and Kuldeep Yadav earned promotion on the list released by the BCCI on Wednesday (February 28). While Siraj, Rahul, and Gill are part of Grade A now, Kuldeep has moved to Grade B from C.
Dropped to a lower grade: Star wicketkeeper-batter Rishabh Pant and Axar Patel are two players who were dropped to Grade B in the latest annual contracts by the BCCI.
Not retained: Test specialist Cheteshwar Pujara was dropped from the list along with Ishan Kishan, Shreyas Iyer, Umesh Yadav, Shikhar Dhawan, Yuzvendra Chahal, and Deepak Hooda.
In addition to these 30 players, cricketers who meet the criteria of playing a minimum of 3 Tests or 8 ODIs, or 10 T20Is within the specified period will automatically be included in Grade C on a pro-rata basis.

Apart from that, the Ajit Agarkar-led senior men’s selection committee also recommended fast bowling contracts for Akash Deep, Vijaykumar Vyshak, Umran Malik, Yash Dayal, and Vidwath Kaverappa.
