Hyderabad: Indian cricketer Hanuma Vihari scored his maiden Test century on the second day of the second test on Saturday. Vihari who is playing his 6th Test, scored 111 runs off 225 balls as he hit 16 boundaries in his innings. He earlier missed out on a 100 in the first test of the series when he got out on 93. Things looked different this time around as he looked more confident and scored his maiden 100.

Scoring his maiden 100, Vihari has cemented his place in the Test team and it looks like he could be the saviour for India’s middle-order crisis. He dedicated it to his late father.

After scoring his maiden 100, Vihari said, “I am happy that I am going in the right direction. My dad passed away when I was 12. Ever since I had decided that when I play international cricket, I will dedicate my first 100 to my dad. Today is an emotional day, and I hope he is proud where ever he is.”
