I am an ardent Cricket fan. Nothing fascinates me like this sport. A chemical engineering graduate pursuing Journalism at Asian College of Journalism. Hardly write about statistics. The contest between bat and ball is everything for me. Love watching Rohit Sharma, Jasprith Bumrah, Kane Williamson and Rabada.
