One of the more common frustrations we hear at PitchVision is the talented player who is not given a chance to prove his ability.
Perhaps you feel you are the victim of this bias.
The men who make the decisions somehow have it in for you or - more often - favour someone else above you for reason that are not about cricket. You can't prove that corruption is happening, but you hear things said and see lesser players chosen above you and become convinced. The coach might tell you it's because the better man was chosen, but you know politics, money or even race lie at the heart of a choice.
It's enough to dishearten the honest, hard-working and talented player.
Don't give up yet, friend. There is hope.
You are not alone. There are inspiring stories of players in your exact position that have gone on to overcome bias and become a cricketer. We can learn from the example.
