This year's Ranji season has been in a lot of turmoil. The BCCI was angered by the non-participation of some international cricketers in the tournament. The names of Shreyas and Ishaan Kishan are prominent in this. Ishan took a break from the series against South Africa in December last year, but did not participate in the Ranji. He was busy preparing for the IPL in Baroda with Hardik Pandya. At the same time, Shreyas was dropped from the team after two Tests in the series against England due to poor form.

Shreyas did not play the Ranji due to a back injury after being dropped from the team. After the start of the quarter-final match against Mumbai, the NCA issued a statement that Shreyas is fully fit and has no problem. Shreyas reached the camp of his IPL team Kolkata Knight Riders citing an injury. So BCCI reprimanded him. As a result, both Shreyas and Ishaan have been excluded from the BCCI's annual central contract. However, Shreyas made a comeback to the Ranji team. He is now playing the final for Mumbai.
