Samit Dravid decided to give a special birthday gift to his legendary father Rahul Dravid. On Tuesday (January 9), he smashed 150 in the Karnataka State Cricket Association's (KSCA) BTR Cup Under-14 tournament (Group I, Division II).
The senior Dravid, who is currently in New Zealand as India Under-19 team's coach at ICC World Cup, celebrates his 45th birthday in two days' time - January 11. His son Samit has given a perfect gift to "The Wall".
Thanks to the right-handed Samit's big knock, his side - Mallya Aditi International School amassed 500/5 in 50 overs and won by 412 runs. In the run chase, the opposition - Vivekananda School were rolled over for a paltry 88 in 27.3 overs.
Scores in brief (Provided by KSCA)
Mallya Aditi International School: 500 for 5 in 50 overs [Johaan 82, Samit Dravid 150, Aaryan S 154, Kaivalya 30, Akshaan 27] beat Vivekananda School: 88 all out in 27.3 overs [Johann 2/25, Kaivalya 3/20, Ishan 3/6, Agastya 2/4] by 412 runs.
Note: This story was updated on January 11 after KSCA sent a correction in scores stating that Aaryan S scored 154 not Aryan Joshi, son of former India Test cricketer Sunil Joshi. It had erroneously attributed the score to Joshi's son and we had reported the same.
