Indian batsman returned to the field after performing the last rites and scored a century
Life is really unpredictable and sometimes it behaves very harshly. The Indian international cricketer Vishnu Solanki has just experienced this. Recently, he lost his newborn baby daughter.
According to the sources, Solanki got the news of the daughter’s birth on the midnight of February 11, but within 24 hours he got the news of the daughter’s death. At that time, he was in Bhubaneswar with the team. He immediately flew to Vadodara to attend the last rites of his daughter and joined the team back within 3 days.
Vishnu Solanki, the right-handed batsman from Baroda has scored a hundred in Ranji Trophy. He got popular when he has scored an unbeaten on 131 runs by the end of the second day’s game.
In that inning, due to his terrific performance, a team of Baroda had reached close to 400 runs. After scoring a century, Vishnu did not celebrate any. Perhaps he was physically present on the field but his mind was engaged with his daughter who is no longer in this world. He has completed both of his responsibilities in the past. He played the responsibility of a father and a player as well.
First performed the last rites of the daughter, then returned to the field. Solanki, who was badly broken by the death of his daughter, created a ruckus on the field against Chandigarh.
On the second day of the competition, Solanki came to the field to bat at number 5 and returned unbeaten with 103 off 161 balls consisting of 12 fours.
It was a tough situation for the player. After this, he attended the funeral of the daughter and then came back to the field to support the team.
Everyone is praising Solanki for his value for dedication to his game. The wicket-keeper batsman Sheldon Jackson tweeted that Salute to Vishnu and his family. It’s not easy by any means. Many more centuries and best wishes for success.
The CEO of Baroda Cricket Association, ShishirHattangadi wrote the story of a cricketer, who lost his daughter a few days back. He performed the last rites of his daughter and came back to represent his team and scored a century. His name may not bring ‘likes’ on social media, but for me, Vishnu Solanki is a real-life hero.
