The Indian cricketer Hanuma Vihari became a household name after he played a marathon innings in the Sydney test match against Australia which helped the Indian cricket team in saving the test match by ending it in a draw. We are talking about the 4-match test series which was played between India and Australia under the Border-Gavaskar trophy and was won by the Indian cricket team by 2-1.
After defeating the Indian squad in the Adelaide test match comfortably, the Aussies got a rude shock when team India under the leadership of Ajinkya Rahane defeated them in Melbourne. In the Sydney test match, the Australians were in a better position for the first four days but on the fifth day when they were close to victory, Hanuma Vihari along with Ravichandran Ashwin stood like a rock between the Aussies and the victory. Hanuma Vihari scored only 23 runs but for that he played 161 balls and his partner R Ashwin played 128 deliveries for his 39 runs. They both remained at the crease till the end of the match ensuring that it ended in a draw.
In the times of the coronavirus pandemic, Hanuma Vihari used his popularity and social media networks to the optimum for helping the needy. The 27 years old cricketer who plays for Andhra Pradesh in the domestic level is quite active on social media and recently he posted a photo on his official Twitter account which is making fans go crazy. In the pic, he is seen talking to someone on phone so the cricketer asks his fans to guess what he is talking about.
Here is the pic:
