Babul Supriyo, the politician who had alleged that Hanuma Vihari had “murdered Cricket” when he had been saving the 3rd Test for India with a torn hamstring, got a tiny correction made by the man himself on Wednesday.

*Hanuma Vihari

“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,” the BJP politician had tweeted on Monday.

“*Hanuma Vihari,” was the minor correction pointed out in a tweet by Vihari on Wednesday.

The Andhra player scored 23 off 161 balls in an exhausting performance to save the match with Ravichandran Ashwin.

It is learnt that both Vihari and Pant, who played a career-defining 97-run knock on Monday, were given multiple pain-killers so that they could carry on.

Vihari is one among several Indian players who are unavailable for the 4th Test in Brisbane, starting from Friday.
