Hello. If you’re reading this you’re either a cricket-lover or you’re a cool, supportive friend. Or both.
I’m Jay and I absolutely love this sport.
I consider myself a scholar of the game. Oh and let’s face it, “scholar” is merely a euphemism for “nerd.”
The thing is, I grew up watching cricket in the pre-IPL, pre-HDTV, pre-bootleg streaming era. Many games simply weren’t on TV channels in my area.
Cricinfo’s ball-by-ball commentary was all I had. Whenever there was a rain delay, I’d pass the time by reading Ask Steven, The Numbers Game by S Rajesh, anything by Harsha Bhogle, and so many more features and columns.
And now I want to do what they did. I want to write truly compelling pieces that make people think, laugh, or feel something that no one else can make them feel.
I’ve been paid to write about cricket in the past. The only difference is that this time around it’s not a side hustle!
The purpose of this website is to write the kind of pieces you would expect to read at CricBuzz, ESPNCricinfo, CricketNext, and other highly reputable websites and publications. I also want to get picked up by one of these big boys.
I plan to publish an article a week at the very least. My writing is a work in progress, so I urge you to keep coming back to watch me get better. I also welcome feedback so don’t hesitate to get in touch if you feel like I’m totally screwing things up. You can say nice things too.
In the meantime, you can follow me on my Twitter and Facebook profiles, which get rather busy on game days.
Thank you for visiting my website. I hope you like the stuff on here!
Oh, and if you’re an Indian selector, please bring back Rayudu.
K. Thanks. Bye.
