About the Author
Jaideep Varma created Impact Index in 2009 which was unveiled that same year at the ICC Centenary Conference at Oxford. It led him to work on the system full-time from 2010, and he has been its chief custodian since. Otherwise, he has been a film-maker (both fiction and non-fiction) and a writer. His first documentary film on the music band Indian Ocean opened the Indian Panorama at the International Film Festival of India at Goa in November 2010, and later won the National Film Award. In February–March 2011, he also did a thirty-episode video diary on the Cricket World Cup for ESPN Cricinfo called ‘Running Between the Cricket’.
Soham Sarkhel joined Impact Index in 2012 straight after a bachelor’s degree in Media and Communication from Symbiosis, Pune. The acid test for him was how this system saw his two childhood heroes – Sadagoppan Ramesh and Roger Twose – whose stories figure in this book.
Nikhil Narain became a part of Impact Index in 2014 after stints at Citibank, the Commonwealth Games team, Cricbuzz and Star Sports, which he left in order to fully utilize his educational skill set of mathematics and statistics. He is an alumnus of St. Stephen’s College and the London School of Economics.
Aakash Chopra, one of the highest run getters in Ranji Trophy cricket, is a well-known former Indian cricketer and a popular television commentator and columnist. He is also the author of the critically acclaimed books Beyond the Blues: A First-Class Season Like No Other (HarperCollins, 2009), Out of the Blue: Rajasthan’s Road to the Ranji Trophy (HarperCollins, 2011) and The Insider: Decoding the Craft of Cricket (HarperCollins, 2015).
