    The First Family

    Who would be the first family of each of the Test nations, and which would then be considered the first family of cricket?

    I have made a few suggestions for some of the countries

    Aust= The Chappells (including Vic Richardson)?

    England= The Graces?

    New Zealand= The Hadlees?

    Sth Afr= Pollocks?

    India=?

    Pakistan?

    Sri Lanka=?

    West Indies=?

    1st Family of Cricket=?
    You know it makes sense.

    The Obuya brothers for Kenya. Joyce brothers and sister for Ireland. The Burger guys for Namibia.

    Im pretty sure Ajuna Rantunga had two bothers that played for Sri Lanka.

    The brothers Rantunga would be hard to beat, was not sure with some of the Sri Lankan boys with the same last name, as to them being related?

    Actually all four brother played for Sri Lanka, no one from Sri Lanka could beat that. Most the guys with the same last name are just like all the Smiths' that played England and Australia.

    India - It would be Ranji Family with Ranjit Sinji, Duleep Sinji, Hanumant Singh and even Ajay Jadeja (a distant relative of Duleep Sinji)

    Pakistan - Mohammads(Hanif, Mushtaq, Sadiq, Shoaib)

    Isn't Ajay Jadeja's full name Ajay Sinji Daulat Sinji Jadeja?

    Yes, I can't really think of many other Indians. Gavaskar and his son, but the son never made it permnantly into the national side.
