Yes, it is a bit off-topic for us but well, such is the kind of impact Indian cricketer Hanuma Vihari has had today against Australia that it is worth mentioning that the Andhra Pradesh born lad is a Manchester United fan and also tweeted about his favourite team back in October.

To give you a background, Vihari had a wretched tour of Australia up till today. It was certain that he would lose his place in India's Test squad next time out. However, the 27-year-old managed to come up with a match-saving innings to help India salvage a draw in the 3rd test down under.

Vihari scored 23 runs on the last day of the game and faced an incredible 161 deliveries to show immense grit against an Aussie attack which was virtually readying itself to knock India out of the game.

And Vihari did that with a hamstring injury!!

Well, here's something that all you Manchester United fans will definitely love even more about Vihari. The right-handed batsman is a Red Devil through and through and just as recently as October, tweeted the below for his favourite football team.

Although, the tweet wasn't a joyful one as he had just expressed his pain after Manchester United were thrashed 6-1 by Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford.

Well, we surely think Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should definitely mention him in his next press conference. His effort today is definitely worth it. What do you guys think???

Here's another brilliant fact for you to adore Vihari even more today!

Meanwhile, the Australian team have been hilariously trolled on Twitter after the match. Go have a look at your trending hashtags today!!
