Sachin Kumar

As the Head of International Relations & Scheduling at Cricket Australia and previously head of Strategy, Sachin has been at the forefront of developing Australian Cricket’s approach to challenges facing the sport in Australia and globally. These have included the development of three national strategies, a new funding model for State Associations, a new performance based model for national players and the restructuring of international and domestic cricket schedules. Sachin has also conducted multilateral negotiations with other cricketing nations about the commencement of new competitions for men’s international cricket and lead the formation of format strategy for Australian Cricket.

Sachin is a strong advocate for the role of the Indian (and broader South-Asian) community in cricket in Australia, and firmly believes this community will be a critical part of the success of the sport in Australia and around the world. Furthermore, Sachin believes that the burgeoning size of the diaspora in Australia represents a wonderful opportunity to further develop, facilitate and nurture bilateral relations between India and Australia across every sphere. Sachin is also a business representative on the Victorian Government’s Taskforce for the first ever Indian precinct in Victoria, in Dandenong in Melbourne’s south-eastern suburbs. Born in Sydney, Sachin previously worked as a management consultant for Bain & Company, and he is a qualified lawyer.
