Tell us about cricket and what it means to your city, how it is followed, any RCB fans there?
We want to know about it all

Cricket is my passion and a part of my soul. It's difficult to say when and where cricket sparked my imagination, but all I can tell you is that, it was love at first sight. Cricket is a common bond that can unite many people with diverse views and beliefs. In our country at least, the outcome of a match can drastically determine the mood swings of a person. Bangaloreans have always been fanatics of the game, and watching a game of cricket at our theater of dreams - The Chinnaswamy Stadium is just an excuse for a million like me to relax and de-stress. The adrenaline rush can be felt as far as 20 km away from the stadium. Watching the roads lined up with people gearing up for the match, people carrying flags and paint on their face is a sight that multiplies the excitement several fold even before the journey to the stadium has begun. Bangalore is the only city where a distance of 20 km can be made to feel like 200 km especially on a day when there is a cricket match. The bumper to bumper traffic, the constant honking and the traffic restrictions can make it look like it would take us an eternity to reach the venue, but once you step out, the sight of the stadium gives you goosebumps. The players waving out to you feels like a personal truimph, being spotted on the big screen feels like we've been recognised by the Prime Minister of India and getting an autograph from a player is almost like immortalizing the pen with which he signed it for you. If this doesn't get you going then surely the music played out by the DJ would give you the kick to rock and roll, something that would put most discos in the world to shame. Namma Bengaluru is the name and the spirit of the people is something that adds to the color, sugar and spice. So if cricket is your religion and the players are your idols then you are not alone, there are millions of fans across the world who shares your passion for the game in equal measure.

 

Cover a local cricket match. The players, the controversies on the ground, the injuries and the team that wins. Build the excitement with your voice and get listeners hooked on till the end.

It's the semi final of the CL-T20 between Mumbai Indians and RCB. MI have lost their 9th wicket and need 8 runs to win off the last 4 balls. Join me for the coverage of the last 4 balls. I tell you what, the excitement of the crowd, the nervous energy of the players and the tense look on the team owners is a picture of thrill. Feel the spirit and the essence of the game in this podcast.

 

I CAN BE RCB'S CHIEF PODCASTER BECAUSE..

Cricket is my religion, but as you all know, religion has various castes and I belong to a caste called 'ROYAL CHALLENGERS'. Podcasting is all about capturing the senses and feeding to the tastes of every cricket fan, young or old. Having taken part in the previous 2 editions of the Fanatic Fans Challenge, I've certainly come out rich in terms of experience each time, and it is this experience which I can bank on when my 3rd essay of this wonderful journey begins. My experience as a commentator at CricBuzz.com has helped me immensely in my tryst with commentary and podcasting. Hoping to put all that enthusiasm and spirit into my work, so that you can feel your pulse racing in excitement!! Cheers!

He was my team mate in FFC1 and he almost made it. Highly talented guys with loads of passion for cricket and RCB. The knowledge of the game will definitely help him write meaningful articles and his creative talent will definitely add value to it. I would love to see him in SA cheering and writing for TEAM RCB. Good luck buddy. Cheers Siva A N

Shashank's writing has been fresh and he seems some one with a zest for the game. Not many people would undergo the rigors of engineering and then honestly choose what they like. Shashank is one of the few who has bucked the trend.I see him go places, and more importantly I see him in South Africa, doing Blogging. He narrowly missed out last year, so he should be able to use his experience to get through this year. All the best Shashank

Well written, one can actually feel lyour ove for the game in these writings, and that should be the benchmark for any cricket writer. If you cant feel the game and feel for the game, your writing is superficial. This is what sets Shanky apart, his indomitable passion for both cricket and RCB. Good luck mate!!!

Shashank is not just an arduent and passionate follower of cricket, but also a very talented upcoming journalist, i feel. I have seen his commitment to cricket and journalism from close quarters and you can judge his talent by the way he puts life in a very boring match too, by means of his commentary! My vote is for him s i feel he is the apt person for the post of chief blogger for rcb

Can't think of any one more suited for the post than you! For the 9 yrs that I've known you I don't suppose I've ever come across a person who's more passionate about the game. You've literally ate,slept and drank cricket .Still remember the days when we used to play for the school team in high school and you used to open the batting for us. I had my money on you to make it big playing the game. Well unfortunately that did not happen. But I'm sure this time around you'll definitely win this contest. I've enjoyed reading your blogs and I'm sure so will the rest of the world :) Cheers mate!
