Like father like son: Samit Dravid is giving this phrase a new definition with his swashbuckling performances in the Under-14 cricket tournaments in Bengaluru.
Rahul Dravid’s son has hit 2 double centuries in 2 months to make a strong mark in zonal competitions.
Last week, he played an unbeaten innings of 211 runs to lead his school Mallya Aditi International’s side to a 132-run victory BGS National Public School in the BTR Shield Under-14 Group I, Division II Tournament.
His innings was laced with 26 fours and a 6.
Earlier on December 20, 2019, Samit made 201 runs to Vice-President’s XI in a zonal competition.
He’s been in a purple patch of form for many months and has been making people take notice of his talent with great performances.
