Hi, I’m Karunya.

I write.

Mostly about sports, often about women in sport. I co-authored a book, The Fire Burns Blue, on the history of women’s cricket in India.

I’m published in:

(A selection)

  • Wisden India Almanack, Wisden Cricket Monthly & wisden.com
  • International Cricket Council
  • Times of India
  • Athletics Weekly
  • The Hindu

I write scripts for podcasts, reported features for magazines, op-eds for websites and content for social media.

I design digital content strategies

I consult for individuals and organisations looking to improve their digital writing and communication.

I can’t guarantee viral tweets, but I can create content that best reflects a brand identity and audience goals.

I talk cricket. (A lot.)

I’ve reported on cricket since 2014, including on location from five world cups. I’ve appeared on BBC TV and World Service Radio as a cricket correspondent and been a guest on leading podcasts.

I advocate for women in sport.

The Equal Hue project aims to chart the way forward for women’s cricket in India through policy, programmes and conversations. The campaign is based on the Equal Hue report, which I co-authored with Snehal Pradhan, former India pacer turned cricket commentator and YouTuber; and the late Sidhanta Patnaik, co-author of The Fire Burns Blue; and which was commissioned by the Sports Law and Policy Centre.
