Santadeep Dey is a reporter and sub-editor with Sportstar. Having graduated from Chennai's Asian College of Journalism in 2018, he primarily writes on cricket and shooting, while also penning articles on chess, football, badminton, and 3x3 basketball.

Besides covering domestic cricket matches, Santa - the longish name sounds way cooler this way - has reported from venues hosting tournaments like the Indian Premier League (IPL), Pro Kabaddi League (PKL), Premier Badminton League (PBL), and Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL).

A failed guitarist from Kolkata, Santa, apart from contributing to the sports desk in Chennai, also occasionally live-blogs football, cricket and shooting events. Additionally, he shoots, edits and features in in-house and on-field video stories.
