BCCI announced Team India on Thursday for the tour of Sri Lanka. Shikhar Dhawan has been named captain of the team in the absence of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. At the same time, the Indian Cricket Board has been sympathetic to many players like Devadut Padikkal, Rituraj Gaikwad and Chetan Zakaria who have performed well in the IPL. However, the hearts of many players awaiting their selection at this time have also been broken, one of whom was named Siddharth Kaul. Siddharth wrote an emotional message on his Twitter that the Sri Lanka tour was ignored.
I have failed again and again in my life and that is why I succeed. And when I fail, there is dullness in my face, which motivates me to work even harder. #Friday Fitness # Friday Morning #Smile # Cricketer # Cricket # Trending Un Sunrisers #indiancricketteam # Cricket #Indian cricket team pic.twitter.com/IDZE1ptKHR

Siddharth wrote, ‘I am constantly failing in my life and this is the reason I succeed. And when I fail, a smile comes on my face, which motivates me to work harder. Siddharth has played three ODIs and three T20s for India. However, Sunrisers Hyderabad’s IPL 2021 is not a feat for this fast bowler. Siddharth has the opportunity to impress selectors by giving a strong showing in the second leg of the IPL in the UAE.
