Ep. 552: feat. Nishad Pai Vaidya
This week, Cyrus is joined by a fellow cricket nut - a cricket statistician - Nishad Pai Vaidya, Sports Anchor, Writer and Media Manager. They get into their obsession with the sport (or as Cyrus calls it, being a 'cricket deewani'), how Nishad has helped keep Cyrus sane during the lockdown, famous cricketers being on a first name basis with Nishad, being a psychiatrist for cricketers, coming from Goa and growing up in Dubai, never having seen a match at Sharjah Cricket Stadium, how England's tour of India in 2001 was what started his affection for the game, his love for Mohammad Azharuddin and Sachin Tendulkar, idolising Harsha Bhogle, how he got his break into cricket, writing a cricket blog, the time he brought attention to a mistake that the 3rd Umpire made in a Deccan Chargers vs Mumbai Indians match and how it changed his life, and lots lots more about cricket! Tune in for an exciting episode!
