In cricket trials their will be some selectors who will be present their and monitor your performance .If you are a batsman you should be able to defend the balls properly and drive the balls smoothly and if you are a bowler your line should be good the pace at which you bowl should be good.

So once the selection is done and if you are selected then you will play many practice matches before the actual tournaments and you have to perform very well their to get a spot in the playing 11.

But if you don't selected don't get demoralized as it is not the end you can again work hard and try no one will stop you to reappear . You might fail sometime but you can't just say I am a looser and stop trying .It is possible next time you may perform very well if you take your earlier failure as a motivation.

Now if you manage to get a place in playing only thing you have to do is to perform the player who performs gets recognized it is as simple as that.

Slowly slowly if you keep performing you will move one step forward every time like from district to State level team then from State level to ranji team.
