Transition from the field of sports to being a commentator on sports is a change that has come quite naturally. Cricket has been a passion manifest from the craze to listen to the commentary hiding the radio inside the quilt when she warmed up to the excitement of cricket. From that stage the real flame for passion for cricket was lit and growing up in Bangalore with neighbors of the likes of Prasanna, and Rahul Dravid, cricket has become an alter ego. The passion got further accentuated with the advent of Indian Premier League and the intoxication continues to catalyze innovative writing for cricket in its all encompassing view.
