Mayukh Bhattacharya - Previews & Features Writer

Mayukh Bhattacharya is a Rahul Dravid fan based in Kolkata with a flair for writing match previews and other features.

Date of Birth: 26th December 1991

Most memorable cricket moment: Watching Rahul Dravid hit the winning runs off Stuart MacGill to win the famous test match at Adelaide in 2003.

Interests outside cricket: Mimicking, travelling, sport writing and social work.

About Me: I became a part of Cricket World on the forum as dips_december in 2005. Thereafter, I won a prediction competition in the forum and received a DVD of the ODI series between Pakistan and India which was played back in the year 2006. That DVD and the letter from John Pennington remains one of my most cherished possessions.

I graduated from college in the year 2013 and have worked in Dubai thereafter.

I will be heading off for my MBA in a couple of months time and wanted to utilize this free time to explore my writing skills. I am thankful to Cricket World and John in particular for giving me this opportunity to cover match previews for the IPL.

Even though the life of a MBA student will mean that I will be barely able to take out time for writing articles in the next couple of years, I will try my level best to remain as active as possible.

The Cricket World experience was a wonderful one back when I was a member and remains the same now that I have been involved as a part of the writing team. I hope to have many more wonderful years with this website.

Cricket related dreams in life:

  1. Meet Rahul Dravid. The reason I started watching cricket was for him and even though he is done with his playing career, he remains my idol and my role model.
  2. Watch a Boxing Day test at the MCG and a test match at Lord’s.
