Andhra captain Hanuma Vihari’s left-handed batting after sustaining a fractured wrist in the quarter-final against Madhya Pradesh in the Ranji Trophy series impressed everyone.
The Ranji Trophy quarter-final between Madhya Pradesh and Andhra Pradesh is taking place in Indore. On the 2nd day yesterday, Andhra was bowled out for 379 runs in 127.1 overs in the first innings. Ricky Phui scored 149 and Karan Shinde scored 110 runs.
On the opening day of this match Hanuma Vihari was batting when a ball thrown by Avesh Khan hit him on the wrist. As a result, he retired after scoring 16 runs off 37 balls. A scan confirmed that he had suffered a fracture.
Hanuma Vihari: However, in yesterday’s match, when the Andhra team scored 353 runs for the loss of 9 wickets, Captain Hanuma Vighari came to bat again. Hanuma Vihari, the right-handed batsman, was shifted to the left-handed batsman due to injury. He almost played with the bat with one hand and hit two fours. Hanuma Vihari, who scored 27 runs off 57 balls, was finally bowled by Saransh Jain. He added 26 runs for the last wicket.
once again…: Hanuma Vihari’s brave effort brought to mind his heroics in the Sydney Test against Australia in January 2021. It is worth noting that Vihari along with Ravichandran Ashwin fought hard against the Australian bowlers for more than four hours despite suffering from a hamstring injury in that match and helped to draw the match.
