4 pairs of relations playing in the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2022
Indian Domestic Cricket involves a lot of players and a lot of competitions. Hence, it is not a surprise if two players from the same family take part in a tournament. On that note, in this article, we take a look at 4 pairs of relations playing in the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2022.
In recent years, India has been lucky to have siblings such as Hardik Pandya and Krunal Pandya contribute to Indian cricket. In the future, as well, we could see some names from the same family feature for Team India. A few of them are currently playing in the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2022.
1) Baba Aparajith and Baba Indrajith - Siblings
The Baba brothers are mainstays in the Tamil Nadu squad across formats. Both form the core of the middle order for the team. While Indrajith is currently leading Tamil Nadu in the tournament, Aparajith has also led the team in the past. While Aparajith also offers bowling services to the team, Indrajith is additionally a keeper apart from his primary role of a batter.
2) Rishi Dhawan and Raghav Dhawan - Siblings
It has been a fine few months for Himachal Pradesh. While the team won the Vijay Hazare Trophy last year, they reached the finals of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy this year. At the centre of this revolution has been skipper Rishi Dhawan. The all-rounder has done well in both departments and has been influential in the team's rise. His brother Raghav Dhawan, also a pace-bowling all-rounder, is also a part of the team. The management will hope that Raghav will also perform like Rishi.
3) Prabhsimran Singh and Anmolpreet Singh - Cousins
Prabhsimran and Anmolpreet have been a part of the Punjab squad for a while now. They are top-order batters and Prabhsimran is also a wicket-keeper. For the future of Punjab, both these cricketers have an important role to serve. While Prabhsimran plays for Punjab Kings in IPL, Anmolpreet plays for the Mumbai Indians.
4) Ambati Rayudu and Rohit Rayudu - Cousins
An unknown pair of family relations is that of Ambati Rayudu and Rohit Rayudu. Interestingly, unlike the other duos, each player in this duo plays for a different team. While Rohit plays for Hyderabad, Ambati is playing for Baroda this season. Rayudu is done with his international career and he was recently retained by Chennai Super Kings for IPL 2023. A talented cricketer, Rayudu will look to extend his IPL career by doing well for CSK next season. Rohit is in good form with the bat this season and will hope to leave an impact like his cousin.
