Hanuma Vihari competed in an epic round on day five of the SCG test to help the Indian team pass the test. He received a lot of praise for his courage. However, as they say, you can’t please everyone, the sleeves of Vihari have also been criticized by a few people. Union Minister Babul Supriyo was one such person and he criticized Vihari on Twitter. However, what was fun to see was the way the Indian cricketer responded to Supriyo’s comments.
Babul Supriyo claims Vihari murdered cricket
In the second rounds of the third Test, India had a huge task of running 407 points. However, an incredible round of Rishabh Pant gave India a silver lining. But the wickets of Pant and Pujara in quick succession and the injury of Ravindra Jadeja brought Australia back into the game.
In such a critical situation, Vihari and Ashwin fought for 42 overs to deny Australia a victory. Babul Supriyo, MP and popular singer, was not happy with Vihari’s approach and he tweeted: “Play 109 balls to score 7! It is excruciating to say the least • Hanuma Bihari not only killed any chance for India to pull off a historic victory but also murdered Cricket .. not keeping a winning option, even from a distance, is criminal. PS: I know I don’t know anything about cricket.
Vihari’s calm response stops Babul Supriyo
Criticism is nothing new to cricketers and they get trolled on social media from time to time. So not many people expected Vihari to respond to Babul Supriyo. However, the Indian drummer decided to respond to Supriyo and did it in style. Instead of arguing or making statements, Vihari simply typed out his correct spelling in a tweet and responded to the singer.
Vihari will miss the 4th test
Vihari suffered a hamstring injury in the second round of the third test. Although he continued to beat, he rarely ran between the wickets. His injury is of a serious nature and he will miss the fourth test.
