But you have not mentioned that which class your studying. Alone with the matches your studies is also equally important, because tournament and matches can be played as hobby or can be taken as a professional career.

In order to be a cricketer in India you need some formal practice. You have to associate yourself with the local clubs and then move onto the state level. This way you can definitely try and go through a process. Most of the time you can follow this process simply by joining the club of university or the local camps.

Most of the local selectors recommend you to the state level. And once you perform on state level then the national level selectors are going to pick you up.

Forget the age if your body is performing well. And also you should focus on performance instead of age. As long as you give some performance and focus then it should be easy for you to sail through. Also see if you can get a coach. Most of the mindset building and the focus part is done on this basis. Nothing can be done if you are not focused and not thinking about the performance.

Most of the time if performance and luck plays role then you can be selected upto national level. Otherwise at the most you can reach upto the local level.
