India senior men's head coach Rahul Dravid's younger son, Anvay Dravid, has been appointed as the captain of Karnataka's U-14 side for a zonal tournament.

Rahul Dravid is currently with the senior Indian men's team for the ongoing three-match ODI series against New Zealand.

A new Dravid is born: Anvay Dravid follows his father's footsteps

Just like Rahul Dravid was the captain and a wicketkeeper-batter for the Indian side, his son Anvay is also a wicketkeeper-batter and now will be leading the U-14 Karnataka side. Anvay is known to be a good batter for his age and has been rewarded for his hard work and consistency with the bat.

Back in 2020, he had fallen short of a century but made headlines for his brilliant fifty in the semi-final of the BTR Shield Under-14 Group I.

Now after becoming the skipper, Anvay is going to have a big responsibility of leading the side by example in the upcoming inter-zonal tournament. It will be interesting to see how he fares in the role. Anvay also has an elder brother, whose name is Samit Dravid. Samit is also a batter.

Once in a zonal match, both Dravid brothers had played a brilliant innings. The match was a part of the BTR Shield Under 14 School Tournament, in which the duo struck a partnership of 200 runs. Anvay had scored 90 runs in that match. The performance of both brothers had helped their school reach the semi-finals of the tournament.

Anvay might be under a bit of pressure leading into the U14 inter-zonal tournament because of the leagacy he carries, and a lot of eyeballs will be stuck on the youngster.
