Emotional Vihari dedicates his ton to late father

Hanuma Vihari scored his maiden Test ton and helped India post 416 on a tough Sabina Park track against West Indies on the second day of the second Test. The emotional batsman dedicated his century to his late father, keeping a promise he made to himself right after he lost his beloved parent 13 years ago.

“My dad passed away when I was 12. So I had decided when I get my first international century, I want to dedicate it to him. Today is an emotional day and I hope he's proud," Vihari said after the day’s play.

The 25-year-old has played his six Tests away from home so far and has been highly impressive with 403 runs at an average of over 40. Vihari’s heroics were were overshadowed by Jasprit Bumrah, who took a hat-trick later in the day.
