A Cricinfo job is the object of much envy among those slogging in the IT sector or servicing foreign clients at a BPO. As a commerce graduate who worked at a call-center, I speak from experience. Upon hearing of an opening, I grabbed the chance and worked for 15 months for Cricinfo's Customer Relations team in Chennai. While I dabbled with cricket writing on the side, I was offered an editorial position in Mumbai. Cricket journalism has trained me to be a neutral observer, unlike a typical fan who is often prone to bias and even irrational judgment concerning his/her favourite team. While the maddening volume of cricket these days means the job is not as cushy as initially thought, the satisfaction I get serving millions of cricket fans is unmatched. The best part of my job is living and working on my own terms in the company of like-minded people.
