Akshay Saraswat is a US Sports writer at EssenstiallySports. A writer with nearly five years of experience, Akshay was a homeschooled student. Throughout his extensive career, he has covered various sporting events and interviewed leading sportspersons, such as Vishwanathan Anand and Carolina Marin. On an ideal evening off, Akshay enjoys a good game of Test cricket with a cup of tea to top it off. However, come the Olympics or the Asian Games, this avid sports lover switches on his do not disturb sign. Apart from sports, he is a news junkie, history nerd, manic foodie, connoisseur of Indian classical music, and a big fan of two greats, Sachin Tendulkar and Dev Burman.
