Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $22

I work with Wisden India as the Assistant Editor, covering cricket matches. I'm proficient with editing, proof-reading, ideating, creative writing, report/fact-based writing, statistical analysis. While cricket is my first area of strength, I'm comfortable writing about any topic, and I often use a wide variety of references outside of cricket while writing my weekly column.

I have been in the cricket journalism industry since early 2009, and my articles, interviews, analyses and reports have a wide readership.

Service Description

The services I offer include, but are not limited to: Writing, Editing, Proof-Reading, Creative Writing, Fact-based Writing, Copy-writing, Sports Writing (particularly cricket and tennis).

I worked as the Editor for Cricbuzz.com and am now Assistant Editor for Wisden India. Cricbuzz is the second largest website for cricket in the world and receives upwards of 4-5 million unique visitors in a month. Wisden is the oldest, most respected name in cricket and has a 150-year history. It formed the games laws and has entered India in 2012. I am part of the core start-up team that has overseen and helped bring the company to India.

My past experiences with editing and writing for major websites, and handling Social Media (Twitter, Facebook), has equipped me well for this. I was part of a two-man team that grew the Facebook users for Cricbuzz.com from less than 1,000 to 50,000. (It is now at about 5,00,00). The initial growth is always the hardest since after that it becomes a self-feeding cycle.
