Vishnu not only joined the team but also scored 103 for Baroda. As the team ended the play on Day 2 they had a 230 run lead at the score of 398/7. Vishnu Solanki who came to the crease at number 5 and scored 103 off 161 balls. Even though he was dismissed for 104 later, Baroda scored more than 500. This important knock by Vishnu helped Baroda at the time of need. Vishnu received lots of praise from his important knock.

Baroda Cricket Association CEO Shishir Hattangadi took to Twitter and praised his knock. “Story of a Cricketer who lost his new born daughter a few days ago. 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.
