Ravichandran Ashwin and Hanuma Vihari’s heroic defensive batting prevented Team India from facing a loss against Australia in the third test against them at the Sydney cricket ground. The duo has made a 62 runs from 259 balls and showed character which awed the fans of Indian cricket team. To our surprise, Ashwin communicates to Vihari in Tamil language throughout their partnership and the former’s wife reacted to it in her official twitter account.
Australia declared at 312 for 6, setting India target of 407 runs to win. Chasing such a huge target, Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill gave India a decent start. While everyone wanted team India to play for a draw, Pant’s terrific innings of 98 runs from 113 balls gave the side to have a hope for the win. His partnership with Pujara helped team India to reach 300 plus runs whereas experts such as Ricky Ponting thought Australian bowlers will restrict the Indian batting line up within 200 runs.
In this test match which saw drama and animated gestures from the players, Ravichandran Ashwin surprised fans by communicating with Hanuma Vihari in Tamil language. According to Prithi Ashwin, her husband said “aadu mama aadu mama” to the Andhra Pradesh based cricketer.
“My mind is playing tricks. I thought I heard “aadu mama aadu mama” between Ash and Vihari now.” said Prithi in one of her tweets and wrote “Tamizhhhhhhhhhh” by adding heart in the eyes emoji.
