Can a reality show land you a place in the Indian team?

Press trust of India quotes Cricket Star CEO Fraser Castellino as
saying the programme would serve as a selection trial for the board and
the winner would be fast-tracked into the national side.

However, when it was pointed out to him that there had never been
trials to pick the Indian team per se as players were picked on the
basis of their performances in domestic tournaments, Castellino made a
volte face. "We will use the board's facilities and draw on the
coaching staff but there is no guarantee of selection into the state or
national team," PTI quoted Castellino as saying.
