New Zealand cricketer Rachin Ravindra’s father, Ravi Krishnamurthy, has denied claims that he named his son after legendary Indian cricketers Rahul Dravid and Sachin Tendulkar.
Ravindra has been making headlines in recent weeks for his performances for New Zealand, and many people have speculated that his name is a combination of Dravid and Tendulkar’s names.
However, Krishnamurthy has denied these claims. He told the Times of India that he named his son Rachin because he liked the sound of the name.
“There is no truth to the claims that I named my son after Rahul Dravid and Sachin Tendulkar,” Krishnamurthy said. “I just liked the sound of the name Rachin, and that’s why I named him that.”
Krishnamurthy also said that he is a big fan of Dravid and Tendulkar, but that he did not name his son after them.
“I am a big fan of Rahul Dravid and Sachin Tendulkar,” Krishnamurthy said. “They are two of the greatest cricketers of all time. But I did not name my son after them.”
Ravindra is a talented all-rounder who has played five Tests and 10 ODIs for New Zealand. He is expected to be a key player for the Black Caps in the upcoming years.
