Game Time: Behind the scenes of covering the Cricket World Cup, with Sriram Veera

The Cricket World Cup is of the biggest sporting events in the world. For cricket fans, it is the thing to look forward to. But what about the people who have to cover and write about it? They maybe cricket fans themselves, but do they actually enjoy it? Or is till just hectic? In in this episode of Game Time, Daksh and Gaurav are joined by Indian Express’ chief cricket writer, Sriram Veera, as he takes us behind the scenes of what it was like covering the World Cup this time – from writing in local pubs in England while chasing a deadline to breaking stories that make the front page. Veera also shares fascinating insights about why stadiums in England are full, the lack of awareness about the World Cup in England and the differences between Indian and Pakistani fans.
