7) Sunil and Rohan Gavaskar
Sunil Gavaskar is quite simply, one of the greatest cricketers the world has ever seen. He burst into the Indian team in 1971 as a terrific opening batsman. For the next 16 years, he remained an ever present figure scoring mountains of runs.
He was the first man to 10,000 test runs and broke Don Bradman’s record for the highest number of test centuries. At the time of his retirement, Sunil, held the record for the maximum runs scored in test cricket (10,122) and the maximum number of centuries (34).
Sunil’s son, Rohan, played 11 ODIs for India in 2004. Unlike his father, he was a middle order batsman and a useful left arm spinner. Needless to say, Rohan will have to, rather harshly, bear the mark of being the not-so-famous son of a famous father.
