Strategy Manager @ Cricket Australia
Apurwa (Aps) Sarve is Cricket Australia’s Strategy Manager. With a background in management consulting, he has spent nearly five years working on cricket’s most significant strategic initiatives during a growth phase for the sport in Australia. Some of these initiatives include the restructure of the Australian Cricket schedule, the creation of the Women’s Big Bash League and the delivery of a transformational program that has increased the alignment of the organisations in Australian Cricket.
Most recently, he was working on the development of the new Australian Cricket Strategy, which was launched publicly in September this year.
After identifying a gap in Cricket Australia’s offerings, Apurwa is currently focused on creating and developing a portfolio of electronic games for the sport. This includes the global sensation that was the Big Bash mobile app and a new Ashes Cricket console game, which is due to be released globally in November.
Apurwa plays local cricket in Melbourne and his claim to fame is batting against MS Dhoni on the middle of the MCG under lights during a trial of the pink ball.
