He attends the funeral and gets back to represent his team to get a hundred. His name may not make social media “likes”, but for me #vishnoosolanki is a real life hero. An inspiration!” he tweeted.

Similarly, Saurashtra wicketkeeper-batter Sheldon Jackson tweeted, “What a player. Has to be the toughest player i have known. A big salute to Vishnu and his family by no means this is easy, wish you many more hundreds and a lot of success.”

The dedication and courage that Vishnu Solanki showed during his innings is worthy of praise.
