STATISTICS

Illustrious Families

- By a Statsman


Bazid Khan of Pakistan became only the second third-generation Test cricketer when he made his debut in the first Test of the ongoing Test series against the West Indies. Majid Khan, his father, and Jahangir Khan, his grandfather, had played 63 and four Tests respectively.
 



Dean Headley - The
first third-generation
Test cricketer

Bazid emulated Dean Headley of England, who became the first third-generation Test cricketer when he emulated his father Ron and grandfather George.

There is another striking similarity between the Khans and Headleys. Two of the three Test cricketers in both families played for one country and the third for another.

George, Dean's grandfather, is still regarded as one of the greatest batsmen of all time, and the appellation 'The Black Bradman' that was conferred on him, speaks for itself. He represented the West Indies with distinction. His son Ron also played for the West Indies, but Dean, who grew up in England, opted to play for his adopted land.

In the Khan family, Jahangir represented 'undivided' (pre-Partition) India in four Tests, and in fact played in India's inaugural Test in 1932. His son and grandson played for Pakistan.

Majid Khan also had a stint as captain of Pakistan. Incidentally, two of his first cousins on his mother's side also played and captained Pakistan in Test cricket; Javed Burki and the great Imran Khan.


The following table lists the career statistics of international cricket's most eminent families. The following combinations are featured:
 

GRANDFATHER-FATHER-SON (Two):
George Headley (WEST INDIES) - Ron Headley (WEST INDIES) - Dean Headley (ENGLAND).

Jahangir Khan (INDIA) - Majid Khan (PAKISTAN) - Bazid Khan (PAKISTAN).

FATHER AND TWO SONS (Two):
