Often you have heard or praised batsmen after scoring centuries, double centuries and triple centuries, but it is very rare when a batsman scores only 27 runs and yet people salute him and even bow down to him. Something similar has happened with Indian batsman Hanuma Vihari. People are saluting Hanuma Vihari, who is captaining Andhra in the quarter-finals of Ranji Trophy. The reason for this is his courage which makes him a very special player. In this match Hunuma batted with only one hand. Hanuma is a right-handed batsman but he was seen batting with the left hand.
Actually Hanuma Vihari was injured during this match. Avesh Khan’s fast ball had broken the wrist of his right hand. This accident happened on Tuesday and then he had to retire hurt. But on Wednesday, after the team’s 9 wickets fell, Hanuma Vihari again came to the crease.
Hanuma Vihari batted despite having a broken wrist. His right hand was injured so he batted with his left hand. Actually, for any right hand batsman, his right hand creates strength, but despite the injury, Hanuma did not give up and he was seen batting with the left hand and only used his top hand . Hanuma Vihari also made a partnership of 26 runs with Lalit Mohan. Andhra team managed to score 379 runs in the first innings.

This player scored an unbeaten 23 runs in 161 balls and on the basis of his innings, Team India drew this match. In the end, Team India won the series.
