Sports quota in India has also been very helpful in getting government jobs for the cricketers. Representing India is a matter of great pride for any player as they have to work very hard to get a chance to play at the international level and have to avoid a lot of competition in a highly populated country.
Many cricketers now serve the Government of India for their achievements at the international level after getting honored positions under the sports quota.
