Former England cricket captain and television pundit, Sir Geoffrey Boycott has revealed that the one role he enjoys the most currently is that of being a grandfather.

Boycott's daughter Emma delivered a baby boy in Yorkshire last month and he hopes Joshua becomes a batsman like Sunil Gavaskar.

"I am very happy to be a grandfather at the age of 79. I would love to see him grow as a batsman like Sunil. Once he grows up, I will take him to Sunil for him to coach him. He is a good friend and I'm sure he'll do it for me. I want another Gavaskar in my family," Boycott told mid-day.
