Venu Palaparthi
Venu is a jack of all trades - a confessed dilettante when it comes to cricket, he only writes occasionally for this website and hopes that it doesn't damage dreamcricket's chances of success.

A proud BITS Pilani alumnus, he is the co-founder of BITSAA International, the USA based non-profit organization created with a dose of passion mixed with community spirit. The same ingredients went in when he co-founded dreamcricket.

Venu lives in New Jersey with his wife and a two year old son who thinks that if he can grow just two feet taller, he could become Gavaskar. Venu earns his bread in the world of financial marketplaces.

NT Shiv Kumar
Shiv fancies himself to be an icon for the Dreamcricket theme - he lives, breathes and sleeps cricket - while awake, he makes a living in the offshore outsourcing industry and is now cutting his teeth as an entrepreneur. He strongly believes Indian cricket missed out on him despite a string of impressive scores that were just 90 odd runs short of well deserved hundreds in Chennai leagues.

Shiv lives in Stamford, CT with his wife and two kids who read CricInfo more than their school books!

Vijay Jeedigunta
Vijay Jeedigunta is just crazy about facts and figures of the greatest game ever played.   His blog, articles, and opinions are nearly always related to Test Cricket and Test Cricket only.

"Though I am not averse to One Day Internationals, in fact I enjoy watching them more than the longer version of the game, I always liked Test Cricket," says Vijay. An avid follower of the game for the last 20 years, Vijay's involvement has been more than at the arm-chair level.  He was All India Radio's Official Statistician for Reliance Cup and also worked with AIR for some Tests played in Hyderabad, India.  In addition, he was a frequent contributor to Deccan Chronicle in their weekly sports page in late 80s and early 90s.

Vijay has updated his notes and spreadsheets with all the facts and figures of game, especially those of Test cricket throughout the last three decades.   "There is no other game in the history of sport which can feed the appetite of numbers and trivial facts loving statistician than Test Cricket.  I hope you enjoy my column and keep coming back to the site day after day to find out some interesting information from the history of Test Cricket.   Vijay lives in Bridgewater, NJ with his wife and two kids.
