The board clarified that both players were not considered for this round of recommendations.

On the other hand, KL Rahul, Shubman Gill, and Mohammed Siraj have been promoted to the Grade A category, reflecting their consistent performances. Rishabh Pant, who missed a significant part of the previous season due to injury, has been placed in Grade B.
