Like every other kid’s dream in India, growing up wanted to emulate my role models and play cricket for India. I won’t be off the mark if I said I’m living my dream. Not only did I manage to play for the country alongside some of the legends but post-retirement have had the pleasure of sharing the commentary box with my role models. Feel truly blessed but the journey has not always been smooth. I was never the most talented but did the next best thing, tried to be the most hard-working. Most things don’t come easy to me, have to keep trying and failing before stumbling upon some success. In this journey from playing at the highest level to captaining Bengal to Ranji Trophy finals, to the chief selector of Bengal to heading cricket operations of an IPL franchise to coaching to commentary, been rewarded to have been mentored by some amazing human beings who were gracious enough to open up their wealth of knowledge to me. My biggest learning from them has been, talent means nothing if it’s not backed up with hard and smart work.
That exactly is my endeavour through this project, to share those learnings, whether it’s coaching or sharing my thoughts and opinions on various cricketing issues. Cricket like everything else is a combination of science and art. While we are all governed by laws of sciences and maths, every individual is unique in their own way and one size definitely doesn’t fit all. Hence need personal mentoring. Coaching has always been my passion and wants everyone to have access and for that to happen, going online is the best possible path. Through this website, I aspire to reach personally to as many as possible. I have tried to keep the process very simple. All you have to do is upload a video with your queries and cricket clips on the website or any of my social media handles or my WhatsApp no and I will get back to you personally.
So let the journey begin……
