Who is Thiru Cumaran?

I don’t want to really patronise myself here, so I’ll be as self-depreciating as possible.

I’m a blogger (jeez, isn’t that pretty obvious) who rarely updates my blog.

I’m unemployed and am sick and tired of searching for a job. Therefore, I’ve decided to continue blogging and hope that The Guardian UK will see how ‘lovely’ my work is and send Lawrence Booth spinning out of the office and make me the editor of Top Spin.

There, that’s all.

PS – John Howard stole my nickname. I was the true CRICKET TRAGIC for nearly 2 and a half years. However, announcement of Johnny as the ICC president from 2012 sickened me to the depth of my stomach. I couldn’t bear to share my precious nickname. Therefore, I had to let it go! Boo-hoo!!!


  1. Hello Thiru,

    any chance you could add my new blog about club cricket in england to your blog roll, and I will return the favour.
