He was recently snubbed by the BCCI from six representatives India squad despite boasting of a record-breaking domestic season. <p></p> <p></p>It was being speculated that the 32-year-old doesn't want to lead the team but he was in attendance during the meeting and denied that he wanted to be quit captaincy. "Yes, I am disappointed at not being picked for nay Duleep Trophy teams, but I never asked to be relived of the responsibility of captaincy. Leading Bengal is an honour and privilege, and I am always ready to take up the challenge," he was quoted as saying by TOI on Friday. <p></p> <p></p>During the last domestic season, Tiwary s average of 126.7 set the mark for the highest in a List A season (minimum 400 runs) and he also achieved two others firsts by a domestic batsman: an average of over 100 in the Vijay Hazare Trophy and Deodhar Trophy. Interestingly, he was told of one these achievements on Twitter by veteran statistician, Mohandas Menon this week. <p></p> <p></p>Speaking to ESPNcricinfo, Tiwary had expressed his frustration at being overlooked for the India A squads to play four-day matches versus South Africa A, a quadrangular series featuring South Africa A, Australia A and two Indian teams as well as the Duleep Trophy. <p></p> <p></p> I was hoping to be picked in the India A squads. When somebody performs to his highest, then he should be rewarded. And I had an outstanding 50-over tournament last season, creating a record that no one else has had in Indian cricket history, said Tiwary, who played the last of his 12 ODIs in July 2015.
