2 double hundreds in 2 months: Rahul Dravid’s son Samit tracing father’s footsteps in Under-14 cricket

India Today February 18, 2020


Rahul Dravid’s son Samit, who has been making waves in Under-14 cricket, grabbed eyeballs again last week by smashing a stroke-filled double hundred in a 50-over contest in Bengaluru.

Samit Dravid hit 33 boundaries en route his double hundred

HIGHLIGHTS
Samit Dravid just took 146 balls to smash the double hundred

Samit had also hit 201 in an Under-14 tournament in December 2019

Apart from batting, Samit has also been picking up wickets on regular intervals
Legendary Indian cricketer Rahul Dravid’s son Samit on Saturday hit his 2nd double hundred in the space of 2 months while playing for his school Mallya Aditi International (MAI) in the BTR Shield Under-14 Group I, Division II Tournament in Bengaluru.

Samit showed an attacking mindset throughout his innings taking just 146 balls and smashing 33 boundaries to complete his double hundred. On December 20, 2019, Samit had made headlines after scoring 201 for Vice-President’s XI vs Dharwad Zone in an Under-14 inter-zonal tournament.

Helped by Samit’s exploits, his side posted a mammoth 377 for 3 in their quota of 50 overs. The mountain of runs proved to be too much to handle for the opposition as Sri Kumaran Children’s Academy were bowled out for 110 handing MAI a huge 267-run win.

However, after starring with the bat, Samit shone with the ball as well picking up 2 wickets to cap a stellar day for the 14-year-old prodigy.

A similar all-round performance late last year had helped Samit grab the headlines when he scored a total of 295 runs across 2 innings to go along with 3 wickets in the inter-zonal tournament mentioned above.

Samit shot to fame in 2015 at the U-12 level cricket in Bengaluru by slamming three half-centuries playing for his school Mallya Aditi International. All his three fifties came in match-winning causes.

In 2016, Samit was in the news again when playing for Bangalore United Cricket Club, he scored 125 against Frank Anthony Public School. Samit combined with Pratyush G (143) and added 213 runs for the fourth wicket, as their team registered a crushing 246-run win at the Loyola school grounds in a 30-over game.

It looks like Samit is certainly following in his dad’s footsteps. Rahul is considered to be the greatest ever batsman to have played for India at the coveted No.3 position. In an illustrious career spanning 16 years, Dravid scored 13288 Test and 10883:runs
