Hanuma Vihari Attempts A Successful Reverse Slap

Hanuma Vihari has stunned the cricket world by batting with just one hand while smashing a reverse shot for four amid exuberant scenes. The Indian test batsman was in extreme discomfort while playing the match saving innings.

During the first innings of the quarterfinal Ranji Trophy match against Madhya Pradesh and Andhra Pradesh, Andhra’s skipper Hanuma Vihari shattered his left forearm.

When Vihari was on 16 off 37 balls, he was struck on the forearm. After getting scans, it was discovered that the batter had fractured his forearm.

Even when it seemed that Andhra had done enough, a rapid collapse left the squad with a score of 9-353. Everyone was in awe as Hanuma Vihari walked to the crease and batted with one hand to save his team’s first innings.

Vihari helped his side out with a 26 run partnership. Surprisingly, Vihari continued to play throughout the game. Andhra had trouble in the second inning. Vihari decided to bat at the final possible moment with his team at 9-76 as a result of this.

And Vihari made a reverse shot for four points in a miraculous moment while his side was having trouble. Before being bowled out, Vihari hit 15 runs off of 16 balls, including three fours.

The cricketing community praised Vihari for his resolute performance as his team’s captain. Particularly, this reverse-hit four drove the cricket community completely crazy.

Vihari has strived to set an example several times. Vihari suffered a hamstring injury while batting in India’s third test matchup with Australia in Sydney. However, he persevered and helped India secure a tie, which enabled them to hold out and win the historic series.

Not just Vihari, this week’s batters have failed to deliver for the cricketing globe. The most notable play in the match versus South Africa was a one-handed reverse slap shot by Moeen Ali that was both entertaining and unsuccessful.

After entirely failing in his effort to knock Tabraiz Shamsi’s left-arm wrist spin to the boundary, Ali decided not to attempt the unusual shot again.

England defeated the Proteas in the third and final ODI of their series, but the home team ultimately prevailed 2-1.

Dawid Malan, who finished with 118, was the only one of England’s top four batters to reach double figures when they started the batting. Jos Buttler, the captain and wicketkeeper, also scored a century, scoring 131 runs off just 127 deliveries.
