Hanuma Vihari’s two word reply to Babul Supriyo is winning hearts on the internet
New Delhi : Indian cricketer Hanuma Vihari showed brilliant resilience during the third Test match against Australia to ensure his team does not lose the game. However, there were many people who loved his innings which frustrated the hosts to the core, there were some who criticized him for being too slow on the field.
He played an unbeaten knock of 23 runs in 161 balls that apparently saved the game for Team India. Union Minister and Bharatiya Janata Party ( BJP) MP Babul Supriyo lashed out on Vihari, saying that the first intention of a player should be of winning the game.
“Playing 109 balls to score 7! That is atrocious, to say the least Hanuma Bihari has not only killed any Chance for India to achieve a historic win but has also murdered Cricket.. not keeping win an option, even if remotely, is criminal. PS: I know that I know nothing abt cricket,” Babul Supriyo tweeted.
In a normal scenario, if someone chose to reply then he may react in an explanation or anger, but this was not the case with Vihari, he came up with an interesting reply and just corrected his name’s spelling.
“*Hanuma Vihari,” he tweeted.
His reaction got a shout out from several social media users and many praised him for being witty and funny.
Ace spinner Ravichandran Ashwin also reacted on Vihari’s reply and tweeted: “ROFLMAX!!”
The final Test match against Australia will start from January 15.
