Andy Kavoori (2021): Cricket, Media and the Nation: An autoethnographic exploration of three mediated moments in Indian cricket.

Abstract: This autoethnographic essay explores the media and cultural construct of key Indian cricketers. It suggests that these cricketers mobilized important moments in the history of Indian cricket—through the lens of one cricket fan (the author). The essay is offered to readers as a (qualitative / interpretative) engagement with the role of sports icons in the wider (identity centered) narrative of nations in the post-colonial world. The essay interweaves the role and development of mass media with the creation of modern fandom across three important eras of post-independence India.
