So, got a bit of an issue with what i will be playing in this year for my school. Im usually part of the 1st XI, but this year we got a few new guys who are quite skilled, so places are tight. Thing is, i dont really feel as though i deserve a spot in the team because i dont really produce many substantial innings(but my technique and skills have improved quite vastly this year), it feels as though i only have the spot because im a senior player.
I feel as though i should drop down to the 2nd XI who play pretty much junior cricket so that i can prove to myself and the 1st's that i deserve a spot. Or should i stay in the 1st's and try and slug it out to bat well, and prove my worth?
any advice is very much welcome
