Many cricketeers make it to their dream teams by reference or through heritage lineage. While some get selected by their sporting abilities! I read that in pakistan the cricketeers selection is done thru zamindars(land owners) heirarchy lineage sportsmen!!! While in india as its a big country with too many different classes of people, so cricket coaching are the mediums of selection!!! The selection are done mainly as under-14 and under-19. Then there are also matches played as under-22. So many budding cricketeers throng to coaching clubs for years some even till 50 age. The matches then played for higher selection to ranji trophy matches are A team and B team. But as the horde of cricketeers are uncultured, so the cricket selection commitee generaly selects projection players for future, like groomed cricketeers who would look good at man of the match ceremonies, on magazines advertisements and for commercial purposes(even on long term basis)! Its a possibility that the horde could end up at the field playing their talent for admirers but those would create a bad impression. So people then have to cheer ovation only some significant! Take for example ajit agarkar, he seems that he never was famous in neighbourhood cricket, neither in school cricket, neither he played ranji matches! He somehow got direct selection to play in indian side and even left quietly! So it seems that many cricketeers first class record is infact made up! Or the facts could be that in india no one likes to play cricket. While i see the domestic cricket in england and australia there are so many cricketeers playing. Anyway cricket seems to have lost enthusiasm in many. Like west indies current players seem that they were enforced to play their matches!!! So there are shody performances!
