S Giridhar

Writer and former cricketer

S Giridhar is the author of From Mumbai to Durban: India's Greatest Tests, along with VJ Raghunath. Raghunath was a left-handed batsman and a fearless close catcher who rubbed shoulders with some of India’s best cricketers in the 1960s and 1970s in the first division league, while Giridhar bowled leg spin and fielded with agility, although he did not play at the same level. Their blog for ESPNCricinfo soon grew into a book, Mid-Wicket Tales: From Trumper to Tendulkar, which was published in 2014 and received great reviews.
