Team India’s Test batsman Hanuma Vihari saved the Test for Team India by teaming up with R Ashwin in the Sydney Test against Australia. At one time in the Sydney Test, it seemed that Team India would beat Australia, but after the dismissal of Rishabh Pant, there was a crisis of defeat on Team India. Then Vihari and Ashwin batted for around 42 overs and saved Team India from defeat. Recalling this partnership with Ashwin, Hanuma said that he did not know that it would become such a big achievement. During this, Hanuma said that he and Ashwin speak in three-four languages.

Hanuma said, ‘We didn’t know what we would do. We had no idea that such a partnership would be such a big achievement against an aggressive bowling like Australia. We batted for almost 42 overs under difficult conditions. He said, ‘We tried to play well against Australia’s aggressive bowling at the crease on the fifth day of the Test. It helped me, because I knew I was injured and could not run. My aim was to take time while batting in that situation and reduce the overs I did and ensure the team’s return to the game. I had no intention of playing for my place in the team. I was only batting according to the situation of the game.

Hanuma said in the Star Sports show ‘Follow the Blues’ on Wednesday, “In the tee break between the matches, I felt that I am thankful to the team for this innings, because the team trusted me in the opening matches and the third match. I also gave me a chance to play. I was very happy for this and showed my expectations of the team. Ashwin and I speak three or four languages on the field. Ashwin and I have a good rapport on and off the field, but it was a good experience to partner with him, not in terms of runs, but balls. He was very comfortable playing off-spinner Nathan Lyon from one end, which made things somewhat easier. If I was playing fast bowlers comfortably, then the coordination became good.
