Earlier it used to be really difficult for players to make their name in the gentleman’s game, Cricket. With time, Cricket has become the most followed sport in India. Seasons and series like IPL increase the chance of budding players to get selected in the national team.
But at the same time, it is one of the most dangerous sport.
No matter where you are standing on the field, there always remains a chance of getting hurt. The position that comes under a high-risk zone is short-leg fielding position. Even many expert players avoid standing at this position.
This is the reason why BCCI has come up with this lucrative job offering for aspiring cricketers for the short-leg fielding position.
