new Delhi. The third Test match played at the Sydney Cricket Ground was drawn. Which was not expected by any Australian player and expert. This is the case of Australia. Now, from India’s point of view, there was one more thing that no one expected and that is Hanuma Vihari’s peg bury. After Dravid and Laxman’s retirement, only Pujara has shown so much patience in the Test cricket team so far. He faced 161 balls and did not get out till the end and scored just 23 runs. The special thing was that he hamstringed a short time after coming to the crease and after that he spent four hours at the crease.
Amazing mix of courage and patience
For Hanuma, not only the Sydney Test but the entire Test series did not take place. The runs were not scored and the shooting was also very poor. He also missed key catches on a few occasions, but even after that, he showed an amazing mix of courage and patience, thrashing the Australia Greyballs to 40 before going to Brisbane ground. Especially fast bowlers. Hazelwood and Cummins looked helpless in front of Hanuma. Stark did trouble in the last few overs, even skipper Tim Paine dropping a catch behind his wicket. Verna Hanuma had no problem with any bowler.
One run scored on 7 balls
Hanuma may not have scored runs, but he played 161 balls and scored 23 runs. That is, he played an over maiden and scored the 7th ball. Because of which his strike rate was just 14.29 in this innings. He scored 16 runs in his innings with a boundary i.e. 4 fours. He managed to save the match for Team India by staying on the field for more than 4 hours.
Career saving innings
Even though Hanuma Vihari is unable to play due to hamstring in Brisbane, whenever Team India selects the team for the next series, Hanuma’s name will remain in mind before the rest of the players. Former veterans like Sanjay Manjrekar, Ajit Agarkar, Sunil Gavaskar said that Hanuma’s innings could prove to be a lifeline for his career. In the coming days, Team India has to tour countries like Zimbabwe, England and Sri Lanka. Hanuma can get a chance there.
