Our guest this week is Nishant Arora who, over two decades, has worked in multiple capacities within cricket – as a TV journalist, player agent, and BCCI media manager, and ICC digital producer.

Nishant had joined us in March to talk about his time as a junior cricketer and his friendship with Yuvraj Singh and other Indian cricketers. You can listen to that conversation here.

Talking Points:

  • The saas-bahu model that the Indian TV media adopted in the mid-2000s
  • The life of a television journalist in an age eager for controversy
  • How coverage of cricket became incidental to a journalist's job
  • The move from journalism to a player agent to a media manager
  • The frosty relationship between the Indian players and the media in the mid-2010s
  • What the BCCI does right - and the scale at which it operates
  • The unsung heroes of Indian cricket - those who nurture the grassroots
  • The increasing number of pathways for channeling talent into potential
  • The spotting of Bumrah and Gill - and the lessons they teach us
  • The future of the cricket media landscape and the opportunities it provides creators
