A shy and reserved girl from Kolkata is now one of the most famous cricket presenters. Archana Vijaya started her modeling career with ‘Get Gorgeous’ in 2004 after which she became a VJ and was signed by Channel V. Later, she was offered to present ‘Tour Diaries’ by Neo Sports during which she got an opportunity to travel with the Indian Cricket Team to different International locations and document the entire journey. This is when her fondness for cricket grew. After Tour Diaries, she was given a chance to present IPL Season 5. This was the first time she was anchoring on live TV which was completely different from what she had done earlier as there was absolutely no scope for retakes or bloopers in a live telecast but she faced her fears and emerged victorious. Soon, IPL became a turning point in her career.
