Jayant Yadav, after making a remarkable Debut in 3rd Test at Mohali, created history at Wankhede as he scored his maiden Test century and became first Indian to score a ton at number 9, however, the happiness for Jayant was short lived as when he was batting against England on Day 4 of 4th Test, his Grand Mother passed away. Jayant’s father, Jay Singh revealed the sad news and said that he missed the moment when his son hit the century because he was travelling to Jalandhar to be with his in-laws.
Speaking to Dainik Jagran, Jay said: ” When Jayant was scoring his century, I had left for Jalandhar because Jayant’s grandmother had died at that time and I missed his century. I got to know about Jayant’s knock through the phone when I was on my way to Jalandhar but I will always be disappointed to miss the moment.”
He further concluded, “I was getting a feeling that he will play a big innings today but at that very moment I received the sad news and I had to leave. When I got the message that Jayant has scored the century, I was confused whether to be happy or sad”
