  • From your narration, it appears that you are already a good cricket player and now want to play in Hyderabad especially through HCA.

    It all depends on the assessment of your proficiency in cricket by HCA. If they find that you are a good player, you can definitely get a chance there.

    Please remember like academics there is a very tough competition in the sports area also. You have to prove your worth if you want to progress there.

    Now if HCA wants you to improve your game and then join them, in that case, you may have to join a coaching academy or cricket club to sharpen your wits.

    So basically it will depend on your overall performance that they enrol you in their playing list.

    After settling in Hyderabad, you approach them and depending on their screening or similar test you will know your future there.

    Knowledge is power.

  • As an Indian one can play in any state as long as you fulfill the regulations. Players from other states who do not qualify as locals are allowed based on the local regulations and rules. For instance, in domestic matches, some state teams can have only up to 3 guest players, these are players who are from other states.

    In your case, if you are really good in your bowling and have good potential to be an allrounder, then you can get a chance to play for Hyderbad or Telangana.

    First would be to start playing for the local clubs in Hyderabad or Telangana that are affiliated to the state cricket club. The Hyderbad cricket association(HCA) has around 217 cricket clubs affiliated to it ( Once you join any of the clubs, then work hard to get noticed by the selectors of the Under 23 and Under 25 cricket team for HCA.

    As soon as you start palying with any of the clubs under HCA contact them regarding the rules and your plans regarding the domicilary status.
