Playing cricket at the international level is hard enough. Out of millions, only a few are lucky enough to get the opportunity.However, certain families have been blessed with international cricketers in more than one generation. Here, we look at 10 father-son duos who have played Cricket for India
1) The Nawabs of Pataudi
Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi is widely known as one of the famous and enterprising captains India have ever had. But, what is known as well-known is the fact that ‘Tiger’ was only the second test captain in the family.
In 1946, India toured England for 3 test matches. Captaining them was the 36 year old Iftikhar Ali Khan Pataudi. Not only that, the senior Pataudi had also represented England early in his career. In 1932, he had even scored a century on test match debut in Sydney.
Mansoor followed in his father’s footsteps, taking up the mantle of captaincy at the tender age of 21. He would go on to captain India in 40 test matches.
