Britain batsman Jason Roy said his century against Pakistan was “exceptionally enthusiastic” after a “harsh morning” in a medical clinic with his child girl.
The opener struck 114 from 89 balls as Britain asserted a strained three-wicket win in the fourth ODI at Trent Scaffold.
“This is an extraordinary one for me and my family,” Roy, 28, disclosed to BBC Game.
“We needed to take my little one to the emergency clinic at 01:30 in the first part of the day. I remained there until 08:30 and returned for a few hours rest.”
Roy, whose little girl is two months old, disclosed to Test Match Uncommon on Friday: “I got to the ground just before warm-up and broke on.
“It was a passionate minute.”
The century was the eighth of Roy’s one-day vocation and his second of the year, following his 123 against West Nonmainstream players in February.
The Surrey batsman battled with a back issue toward the beginning of the residential season and missed Britain’s opening ODI against Pakistan.
He returned at the highest point of the request in Cardiff, making 87, and he hit 76 in Tuesday’s triumph at Bristol.
“I’m not as my life. It was not my most familiar of innings,” Roy included.
“It was an incredibly exceptional inclination to get more than three figures. I didn’t see it coming.”
