There are a lot of players who have good skills and they were dominating constantly in this industry but due to a lack of enough sheets, very few players get a chance to play and selected on the Indian team. In this game on who selected for the Indian cricket team, he will play 4 to 5 years in a row. So here you can guess ur chance of selection in the team. It would be very hard to get a chance because everyone is doing good and trying to impress the selectors. Sachin Tendulkar played 20 years in the team. It means a new candidate got their chance after 20 years of patience. It might be tough to get a chance in a team where a player has already played since last year. Often few incredible talents were got their opportunity. If you want to get selected and play from team India or IPL, you have to give your 100 %and wait for your opportunity.
