A certified sports junkie by birth, Jatin Sapru found his own non-playing role in the world of sports in 2008. Winner of ESPN’s reality hunt for a T.V. presenter, Dream Job season 2, Jatin is nearly a decade old in the industry.
Now, the lead presenter for Star Sports’ Hindi coverage of international cricket, he has presented a long list of shows with some of the greatest names to have played the sport. Sunil Gavaskar, Kapil Dev, Sourav Ganguly, Rahul Dravid, Virender Sehwag, VVS Laxman, Nasser Hussain, Kevin Pietersen, Steve Waugh to name a few, Jatin’s genial personality and generous cricketing acumen has allowed him inside access to an otherwise exclusive cricketer’s only club. He made his commentary debut at the ICC World T20, 2014.
Cricket aside, Jatin has presented the London 2012 Olympic Games, ESPN’s Sportscenter, the F.A.Cup, taken flak for being a Manchester United fan on Nike Football Locker Room and rallied across the Himalayas and the Great Indian Thar. He’s usually his own careless self on social media.
