The Sunrisers Hyderabad pacer Siddharth Kaul on Friday took to his official Twitter handle and penned down an emotional note after his snub from India’s squad for the upcoming tour of Sri Lanka.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India recently announced a 20-member squad for the limited-overs series against Sri Lanka, which is scheduled to take place from next month.
While the likes of Chetan Sakariya, Devdutt Padikkal, and Ruturaj Gaikwad received their maiden India call-ups, Kaul was not considered for the selection.

What was Siddharth Kaul’s message?
After BCCI’s latest announcement, Siddharth took to his official Twitter handle and said how failing multiple times has helped him succeed in his career.
“I have failed over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed. And when I fail I have the smile on my face which motivates me to work even harder,” the 31-year-old tweeted.

Siddharth made his international debut for India during the three-match T20I series against England in 2018. Since then, he has played just 3 ODIs and 3 T20Is so far.
