Hanuma Vihari Fractured Wrist: Andhra Pradesh captain Hanuma Vihari was injured while batting in the Ranji Trophy quarter final match against Madhya Pradesh. Right-handed batsman Vihari injured his wrist while playing a bouncer from Avesh Khan. He left the field immediately. Till then he played 37 balls in his innings. But, despite the injury, the 29-year-old returned to the field and faced 20 balls. But when Vihari came to play for the second time, he batted left-handed. He scored 27 runs off 57 balls with 5 fours. Finally he took the path of the pavilion as an LBW.
From cricket fans to veteran cricketers, Vihari’s courage is showered with praise. India’s veteran wicketkeeper batsman Dinesh Karthik tweeted, “Hanuma Vihari bats left-handed. Especially since he plays with only one hand.” Spinner Ravichandran Ashwin also commented that Vihari is a real fighter.

Along with the players, noted commentator Harsha Bhogle also heaped praise on Vihari. “Hanuma Vihari has once again proved what a strong and courageous player he is. Today he batted left-handed due to a fracture in his wrist. He entered the field confident that a few extra runs would make the difference. Sydney 2021, do you remember that partnership with Ashwin? In that he was instrumental in keeping India alive in the series. He saved India from defeat,” he said.
