India batsman Hanuma Vihari scored his maiden Test hundred during the second Test against the West Indies at Kingston on Saturday.

FULL SCORECARD

Vihari came in to bat at the fall of Ajinkya Rahane's wicket on the first day and remained not out on 42 at the close of play. Despite losing Rishabh Pant and Ravindra Jadeja cheaply on the morning of the second day, the Andhra Pradesh batsman stitched a valuable hundred-plus stand for the eighth-wicket with Ishant Sharma as India look to post a commanding first innings score.

The 25-year-old brought up his three-figure mark with a single off his 200th delivery and struck 15 boundaries.

Vihari, who is playing in his sixth Test, scored a fifty on debut against England at the Oval last year and had an impressive tour of Australia scoring 121 runs in three matches.

In the opening Test against the Windies, Vihari once again justified his selection with a valuable 93 in the second innings.
