3 relations of former cricketers playing in the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2022

The 2022 edition of the Vijay Hazare Trophy is happening at the moment. India will host the 2023 ODI World Cup. Hence, there will be opportunities for players to get selected for the event. In this context, the ongoing VHT is very important, especially for those cricketers who are on the fringes of the Indian Cricket Team. Every season, we see at least a few players, linked to former cricketers, take part in the event. On that note, here, we take a look at three relations of former cricketers playing in the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2022.

1) Arjun Tendulkar (Goa) – Son of Sachin Tendulkar

Arjun Tendulkar is a popular name as he is the son of Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar. Although he did well in age-group cricket, the player could not kick in at the senior level. For Mumbai, he has not got opportunities consistently. Hence, before this season, he made the move to Goa.

For Goa, though, Arjun is a consistent part of the XI. In fact, he did well in a couple of games. India has a dearth of left-arm seamers who can also add value with the bat. Hence, Arjun, if he can be consistent, has a bright future.

2) Mayank Dagar (Himachal Pradesh) – Nephew of Virender Sehwag

Having played for India in the U19 World Cup before, Mayank Dagar is an important part of the Himachal Pradesh line-up. While his main role is that of a spinner, he is also useful with the bat in the lower order.

A few years ago, he was part of the Punjab Kings setup. The player will hope that he gets more opportunities in the IPL to showcase his skills.

3) Armaan Jaffer (Mumbai) – Nephew of Wasim Jaffer

Armaan Jaffer became popular after he did well in Shield cricket. He is now an important part of the Mumbai XI and is scoring runs consistently just like his uncle Wasim.

Jaffer usually bats at No.3 and at times, also does the job further down the order. He has loads of talent and will want to emulate his uncle’s journey from now on.
