Shirin Sadikot is a Cricket tragic-cum-cricket fanatic turned cricket writer – although she is loath of calling herself that just yet and prefers to be known as a student of the game. Since taking up journalism as a career with the sole motive of living life within the boundary of a Cricket field, she has been writing about the sport since 2008. She belongs to the group of romantics for whom life is nothing but an extension of Test cricket. Her writing mirrors her passion for the game which, in her own words is, “An ocean of endless intricacies, a proud heritage of history and awe-inspiring richness”. To plunge into the innermost depths of that ocean is the objective of this writer’s life.

She has also been keenly tracking the domestic circuit and women’s cricket for the past couple of years.

Arun Gopalakrishnan was bitten by the Cricket bug during his formative years when he spent almost every weekend playing tennis ball Cricket. That passion and hunger only increased as he grew up, and he took to playing league cricket in Bangalore. When realization dawned on him that he was going nowhere where playing was concerned, he took to other avenues within the ambit of the game. He is sort of an all-rounder where Cricket is concerned; apart from being a freelance journalist, he is also a statistician, a State Panel Umpire in Bangalore, an International Panel Scorer and a keen analyst of the game. Unlike many in his age-group – early 30s – he is a Test cricket romantic and prefers prolonged contests between bat and ball. Put briefly, cricket is life for him – everything else comes next.
