Hanuma Vihari, the renowned India Test batter was seen performing a similar brave act for the national side in 2021. Vihari batted with a torn hamstring in the famous Sydney test match against Australia in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy along with Ravichandran Ashwin. Vihari and Ashwin helped the Indian side achieve a crucial draw in the all-important Australia series. The partnership between the two at the iconic Sydney Cricket Ground is certainly one of the finest in the history of Test Cricket.
