We have seen cricketers from the same family play together on the field. In this aspect of playing together on the field, we have seen plenty of pairs of siblings do that. Even cousins do that often. Recently, with the Chanderpaul duo, we also saw a father-son duo take the field together. However, one relation that we have hardly seen play together is the uncle-nephew relation. That said, in recent times, even that has happened. On that note, here, we take a look at the list of two pairs of uncles and nephews who are currently a part of the game of cricket.
1) Muhammad Huraira – Shoaib Malik
Muhammad Huraira and Shoaib Malik are a part of this list of pairs of uncles and nephews who are currently a part of the game of cricket. We all know about Shoaib Malik. Having made his debut long ago, Malik is still an active part of the game.
Malik’s nephew is also doing well right now. A few years ago, he struck a triple century at the domestic level. This duo has played together in domestic cricket. Huraira was picked for Pakistan Test Team a few months ago in June but did not get to make his debut.
2) Ibrahim Zadran – Noor Ali Zadran
One of the famous pairs in this regard belongs to Afghanistan. Noor Ali Zadran played a lot of games for Afghanistan. However, he is currently out of the setup. That said, he still has a chance to make a comeback. He was recently part of the Asian Games 2023 squad that reached the finals in China.
On the other hand, Ibrahim is at the peak of his career. He had a wonderful run as an opener in the recent 2023 ODI World Cup. He is a quality cricketer and has a bright future ahead of him. It now needs to be seen if he can take his game to the next level in the coming months.
