Hanuma Vihari enters record books to equal Tendulkar

The Indian cricket team has found a fine middle order batsman in the shape of Hanuma Vihari who he has been a consistent run-scorer for them in recent times. The right-hander recently scored his debut Test hundred, leading India to a convincing victory in the 2nd Test against West Indies.

In his 6 Test appearances so far, Vihari has scored 456 runs at an average of almost 46 with 3 half centuries and 1 hundred. The 25-year-old has now equalled a long-standing record of batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar to become the 5th Indian batsman ever to score a hundred and a fifty in a Test match while batting at number 6 or below.

Tendulkar did so back in 1990 when he scored 68 and 119* in the two innings of the Test match in Manchester while Polly Umrigar, MAK Pataudi, and ML Jaisimha are the other players who achieved the same feat.
