Indian batsman Hanuma Vihari and Ravichandran Ashwin created history after pulled off a memorable draw for Ajinkya Rahane & Co. Most of the Indian players have sustained injuries, Hanuma Vihari was struggling with cramps and R Ashwin wasn’t fit 100%. Despite that, They both went off to bat and saved the match from losing. But a tweet from Union Minister Babul Supriyo triggered outrage on social media.

After losing the wicket of set batsmen Rishabh Pant and Cheteshwar Pujara, It was more important for team India to save the match. And Hanuma Vihari did a great job as he faced 161 deliveries and scored just 23 runs. However, Union Minister Babul Supriyo criticized Hanuma Vihari for his slow knock and said India lost the match because of him.

Babul Supriyo wrote in his tweet, “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 about cricket.”
