Overnight Microsoft officially announced that Satya Nadella would be taking over the company's reins as Microsoft's third CEO.
Satya is a 46 year old family man with 3 children born in Hyderabad, India. He has been with Microsoft for 22 years and has had many roles across a multitude of areas within the company.
On the plus side, he is an avid Cricket fan and so he might help the Americans understand the game.

PS: When it comes to Cricket, I much prefer the shortened limited "over" games which last hours rather than the test matches which last days. But it does help when Australia wins the 2013 Ashes test match series against England with a score of 5-0.
