Shayan Acharya

An Assistant Editor/Special Correspondent with Sportstar, Shayan primarily writes on cricket and is based in Mumbai. In his decade-long career, Shayan has covered two ICC World Cups -- in 2011 and 2019 -- and the World T20 in 2016.

Apart from the World Cups, he has also covered multiple bilateral series and Indian Premier League fixtures. His heart, however, lies in domestic cricket, and that?s the reason, he writes extensively on India?s domestic cricketing scene and the players. Having covered multiple Ranji Trophy, Vijay Hazare Trophy and Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy fixtures, Shayan enjoys watching the youngsters unearth their talents.

In 2017, he was the only Indian sports journalist to cover the prestigious Volvo Ocean Race -- a yacht race around the world, held every three or four years, since 1973 -- in Alicante, Spain. He also tracks other sports and is a big fan of Indian cinema. When he is not writing cricket, Shayan loves listening to his all-time favourite singers -- Kabir Suman and Anjan Dutt.
