Cricket is not called a game of sacrifice in the same way. From time to time people associated with this game do something like this. Something similar was also seen in a Ranji Trophy match between Baroda and Chandigarh, which is remembered forever. Baroda (Baroda Cricket Team) batsman Vishnu Solanki, who came out to bat in the first innings in this match, took a lot of news from the Chandigarh bowlers with his batting. Baroda scored a mountainous score of 517 runs in the first innings, thanks to his brilliant century of 104 runs. After which his innings is being praised a lot. The biggest reason behind this praise is that, recently, just a few days ago, he lost his daughter. Who could not spend even 24 hours in this world
Century returned from daughter’s rites
Vishnu Solanki, who came to bat at number 5 for Vadodara, scored a brilliant 104 off 165 balls. In this innings, he hit 12 fours. However, after completing the century, he did not celebrate any kind of celebration. Perhaps his mind is still with that daughter. Who died a few days ago.
According to the news of the Hindustan Times, on the midnight of February 11, he got the news of the birth of his daughter. And then, within less than 24 hours, he had to hear the news of his death. Vishnu was in Bhubaneswar with the team at that time. After which he reached Vadodara to attend the last rites of the daughter and then joined the team back within 3 days.
People are tying bridges of praise
Vishnu first performed the duty of being a father by rites of the daughter and then after understanding his responsibility for the team, Solanki decided to get on the pitch and scored a brilliant century. After which everyone is praising and saluted Solanki for his passion for the game.
Saurashtra’s wicket-keeper batsman Sheldon Jackson said in one of his tweets that, Salute to Vishnu and his family. It’s not easy by any means. Many many more centuries ahead and best wishes for success. Vadodara Cricket Association CEO Shishir Hattangadi said that Vishnu is a real-life hero for me.
