Graeme Pollock, who would have perhaps created many records but the political situation did not allow him to do so, was born on this day. He played only 25 Tests for his country before South Africa was suspended from cricket. He made two hundreds in his first series against Australia in 1963-64. They were followed by a century at Trent Bridge in 1965.
Glenn McGrath took 7 for 15, the best bowling figures in a World Cup match. Australia made 302 batting first. In response to that, minnows Namibia were all out for 45, thanks to McGrath’s fiery spell. Australia won by 256-run that was a record at the time.

After her post- graduation in English, Poulomi joined the leading television production house of eastern India, Rainbow Productions. She was a journalist in Khas Khobor, a Bengali news magazine programme in Doordarshan and also headed the post production department of another programme, Khas Kolkata.
In 2004, Poulomi moved to Delhi as a creative writer in an advertising agency, Brand Stewards Pvt. Ltd. In 2005, she again shifted her base for a better opportunity and that in Mumbai. There she got the job in Raa Media Pvt Ltd. as an associate director of two programmes for Doordarshan-Yuva and Paisa Vasool. In the meantime, she also wrote features in DNA as a freelancer.
Poulomi directs promotional videos, develops scripts for films for Corporate and NGOs. But an ardent sports lover, Poulomi always had an urge to contribute somewhere in the field of sports. Her love for sports started from an early age when she played gully cricket and football for local teams. Academics and professional hazards sometimes took her away from her passion, but it never died in her. She always nurtured the never-ending dream.
So she materialized her dream in the form of ‘SPORTSAVOUR’. It is an online sports portal that serves sports with the tagline ‘For the indigenous, unconventional, unknown’.
