Samit Dravid, son of Rahul Dravid, follows in his father's footsteps, as he slammed a terrific match-winning century and guided his team Mallya Aditi International School to a huge 412-run win over Vivekananda School.

His spectacular performance shows that he is training hard for the Karnataka State Cricket Association's (KSCA) BTR Cup Under-14 tournament.


The century came just a day before his father's birthday. Rahul Dravid is currently in New Zealand coaching and guiding Under-19 team for the World Cup. Rahul Dravid is the former captain of Indian cricket team and has made many records for team India.

Not only Samit, another super kid, Aryan Joshi, son of former India cricketer Sunil Joshi, scored a ton and contributed 154 runs for Mallya Aditi International School.

Samit's team gave a target of 500 runs to the Vivekananda School but the opponents failed to perform.

The young batsmen did their bit by setting a mammoth target and also the bowlers were in form.

These magnificent knocks show that future of Indian cricket is in good hands, these kids will carry the legacy of Indian cricket forward.
