Sons of Illustrious fathers

Andrew Miller and Martin Williamson have compiled a Cricinfo XI with players who couldn't be bracketed in the same league as their legendary fathers (/grandfathers).

The XI - WG Grace Jr, Richard Hutton, Eric Bedser, Rohan Gavaskar, Shoaib Mohammad, Liam Botham, Mali Richards, Chris Cowdrey, Bobby Parks, Ron Headley and John Bradman.

I wish the kids in the images below (Ibtisam Ul Haq and Arjun Tendulkar) would never make it to this (under-achievers) XI, but would reach the same dizzying heights as their fathers.




On a sidenote - Noticed the left-right combos? Arjun Tendulkar, Ibtisam-Ul-Haq, Mali Richards and Rohan Gavaskar (sons of legendary right-handed batsmen) are all left-handed batsmen. [Pic Courtesy: Ibtisam (KM Chaudhary) and Arjun (Jewella Miranda)]

Noticed how among the brothers who've played international cricket, the older one is typically the gutsy guy while the younger is the one with flair? I wrote about it a couple of years ago.
