many players like munaf patel, irfan and yusuf, why! our own captain dhoni come from rural background. do you think they were born rich? if a person is talented, he will surely reach his results...

There are many rural players who played for india.And in the present team also,Munaf patel is a player with rural background.And i think thier may be many rural players in future. Ofcourse,if selectors did not involve the plitics than,india will emerge as the only champ in the crickting world.

bit difficult. but if he manages to gets highlighted in the ranji matches, may be he has a chance. he has to play extremely well. perform unnaturally. because he has no political background. every chance may be his last chance..

i don't think rural player have that much problem to grt in to indian team. later i would have said yes but at present condition he don't have to play for india A or some thing like that he can prove his talent even by playing IPL , and all this matches are watched by a large number of people, if you are capable enough to impress that group of people sooner or later he will get in to the indian team.

It is quite possible. No doubt about it. But may I tell you one thing. As Bollywood, cricket too is a Tinseltown. This is a tough field, my friend. I am not dissuading you. I think, you are the one who is talking about yourself. But I am encourging you. You know, there are thousands of brillient cricketing brains around in India. Because, cricket is a nation passion. And when a sport is especially famous or popular, there is a great fan following. so, many geniuses are born. I too, some day wanted to play very serious cricket. But you know its not possible for all. But I hope, the one you are talking about, may his dream come true. MY BEST WISHES ARE ALWAYS WITH THAT GUY!
