Story – This is what Dilip Sardesai reminded his son Rajdeep Sardesai on regular basis

I am often asked: why didn’t you play for India like your father Dilip Sardesai? My answer is simple: a politician’s son or daughter has a fair chance of getting elected and becoming a member of a legislative assembly or Parliament or even prime minister; a business house may actively promote hereditary succession; an actor may produce a film for a star-son but a Test cricketer’s son cannot wear the India cap without being one of the 11 most talented players in the country. As my father would routinely remind me, “I am not going to be there to score runs for you on the pitch, you have to do it!”
