NEW DELHI: Team First. That was Hanuma Vihari‘s message after his valiant effort on Day 2 of Andhra Pradesh’s Ranji Trophy quarter-final match against Madhya Pradesh in Indore.
Vihari, who sustained a broken wrist after being hit by a short delivery by pacer Avesh Khan, retired hurt on 16 in Andhra’s first innings. When Andhra lost 9 batters of their, Vihari once again came out to bat. He batted left-handed and played one-handed shots.
Vihari, who added 11 more runs to his tally and departed for 27 runs, was applauded for his courage and never-say-die attitude on social media.
Vihari took to Twitter later and posted videos of him walking out to bat, while being applauded and then batting left-handed, with a message that read: “Do it for the team. Do it for the bunch. Never give up!! Thank you everyone for your wishes. Means a lot!!”.

A similar kind of effort was seen during the Sydney Test in 2021 when Vihari batted with a torn hamstring, which was later diagnosed to be a grade two tear, and helped India salvage an improbable draw in the face of imminent defeat.

Vihari and Ashwin put on a match-saving 62-run 6th wicket stand, facing a cumulative 289 deliveries between them to stave off the fiery Aussie pace battery, which had the likes of Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazelwood, and Pat Cummins.
Vihari last played for India on the tour of England in July last year in the fifth and final Test in Birmingham.
