Moreover the other members talk among themselves leaving me. They also try to tease me sometime whenever I don't play well. But I always try my best and our team wins sometimes only because of me. Should I leave the team? Please help me.

Nothing much to be done really. Just begin praising others for their good effort during play. Do it with all your good intentions.
You need to introspect whether you are one of the ‘cold’ members of the team. Become warm to people around you and you can expect the same to return to you.

I am very choosy about nature because I am bit emtional that's why I am alone. Please help me.

World is a mirror image of ours. If we are happy the world laughs with us. If we are gloomy everything appears gloomy. So is the case with you. You are very choosy and the world around you is also choosy.

Drop this mental set. There is actually nothing like ‘I am this hence I can not be that’. It is all about need of the situations and appropriateness of our behavior. Get into learning the skill of mingling with people. It is very easy. Respect others and allow your natural goodness of self to freely float.
