Tell me at this age, if i leave  everything and start my cricket carrier will i able to reach internationl cricket team?
If yes, help me to leave everything.

Dear pradeep,
         Many of the players from india give up cricket due to financial problems or family problems but in your situation at the age of 27 it is difficult to play professional cricket because you need some exposure at the age of 15-20 years only so the people like you generally opt for administration department of support staff department or and match could become a international umpire if you start professionally by now to get the details you could contact the hyderabad cricket association and also you need not leave your job because the basic umpiring job would be only on sunday's but after you gain some experience you could be promoted to higher league level and after that you could be selected for the first-class or state matches and after that you could umpire in the international matches starting now it could take 10-15 years to become a international umpire or want to become a coach or physio or video analyst or a curator you could get the detalis at the HCA and same for the administration departments.
         Don't loose Hope you could serve cricket by not only by playing but also through these departments.listen nothing is easy in the field of cricket and every department has it's own importance and the triumph is shared by everyone equally.
