It is quite a common sight to see the young ones try hands on the profession that their father once pursued. And cricket is no different. Here are some of the sons of Indian players who might be playing for the Indian side in the coming future.
It is no doubt that cricket is a religion in India and many youngsters tread this path. Often it is seen that cricketers’ sons take to cricket quite early in their life and are seen being trained by their fathers, who have already played for India. From time immemorial, there have been many players where father and their immediate sons have been seen in the Indian jersey. Let’s just see some of the legendary Indian players’ sons who might play for India in near future.
Sachin Tendulkar’s son Arjun Tendulkar
The son of ‘The God of Cricket’ has pursued the same career that his father did. Arjun Tendulkar is a swashbuckling allrounder. Known for the left-arm pace he has not yet played any senior cricket. He has appeared in Under-19 and other age cricket but is yet to make a mark in IPL as well.
Rahul Dravid’s son Samit Dravid
Samit Dravid, the son of the great Rahul Dravid. ‘The wall’ of the Indian cricket ensured that his son took to cricket from a very tender age. A few viral videos of his son showed that he has shown potential beyond his age. He has already gained fame at the school level as he has scored two double centuries and is known for his explosive batting. He is quite decent with the ball too and has alone emerged as a match-winner just like his father.
Wasim Jaffer’s son Armaan Jaffer
The stalwart from Sangli, Armaan Jaffer is emerging as a strong player. The prolific batsman slammed three consecutive double hundreds and thus averaged an incredible 223.75 in the Cooch Behar Trophy. He also played for Kings XI Punjab in the 2016 IPL. He might appear in the Indian team if he hones more on his cricketing skills.
Sanjay Bangar’s son Aryan Bangar
Son of the talented former allrounder Sanjay Bangar, Aryan Bangar is a budding cricketer. News recently surfaced as India’s bowling coach Bharat Arun was providing Aryan Bangar some batting tips. He represented Puducherry in the National U-19s (Cooch Behar Trophy) where he scored 300 runs in five games. Besides picking 20 wickets, he also registered a brilliant 150 and two half-centuries in the tournament. Aryan Bangar currently plays junior-county cricket for Leicestershire.
