    Please note that there is as much competition in the sports area as in the academics and everywhere there is a tough competition so a lot of efforts and determination is required.

    1. India is one of the best cricket-playing nations of the world. Moreover, cricket is very popular in most of the parts of the country. Many good players are now emerging from many states who are eager to play for India. You also want to acquire India cap. So, you have to prove your ability as a cricketer. Please remember, to have India cap, you have to be among top 16 cricketers (11 players + 5 reserves) of the country. So, you have to prepare accordingly.
    2. You have not mentioned your state. So, it is difficult to give specific advice regarding coaching. With the increase in popularity of cricket, excellent coaching facilities are available in many cities of the country. You will get first-class training and modern academies in Mumbai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Kolkata, Vadodara, Nagpur, Jamshedpur and some other cities.
