Actually, my dad passed away when I was 12 so ever since, I have decided that when I play international cricket, I want to dedicate my first hundred to him,” Hanuma Vihari said.
“Today is an emotional day, and I hope he is proud wherever he is, and I’m really happy that I achieved that,” he added.
“Happy that I got a century and credit should go to Ishant. He looked more like a batsman today than me. The way he was going, we kept discussing what the bowler was doing, and his experience really helped.”
“When I was batting overnight on 42, I did not sleep really well as my thoughts were obviously running on how to get a big score today. I’m really happy that I could get my first hundred, especially in those conditions. It gives me a lot of satisfaction,” Vihari said.
“I was batting at 84 during lunchtime; then it took me hard to get to the nineties. We have to give credit to the bowlers as well. Even though we scored 416 runs that do not show the way they bowled,” Vihari said.
