India cricketer Hanuma Vihari comes across as a no nonsense person and likes to do his job while on the field. However, there is no doubt that he is a fighter and his this quality was on show during the Sydney Test against Australia earlier this year. He helped India draw the game along with Ravi Ashwin despite being injured and not able to run.
Even off the field, Vihari likes to stay away from the limelight. Despite being in England for his County Championship stint, the cricketer is trying his best to help the needy through his official Twitter handle. He has been raising funds when and where necessary while also amplifying the verified leads even as India is fighting the second wave of Coronavirus.
But even in these stressful times, the keyboard warriors on social media are at it taking digs at cricketers and celebrities every now and then. One such incident also happened with Hanuma Vihari as one of the Twitter users asked him to bring Masala Dosa and Coconut Chutney.
Hanuma Vihari is generally to ignore trolls but this time around, he decided to give it back to the user. He cleared that he would’ve definitely brought a Dosa for the user if he was struggling like the people of India. Moreover, Vihari also gave it back to him taking a dig saying that the Twitter user is suffering from a different disease.
“I would if you’re suffering like many people in India are right now. Oh, wait a minute you’re actually suffering from a different disease. I’m Sorry!” Vihari’s reply read.
Here’s his reply:
Hanuma Vihari not in great form in County
Meanwhile, Hanuma Vihari isn’t in great form in the County Championship at the moment. He is featuring for the Warwickshire this season and has managed to muster only 100 runs in six innings with a half-century to his name. However, this experience will surely hold him in good stead for the World Test Championship (WTC) final and the subsequent England Test series.
