The video was originally shared by PRO, Udhampur, Ministry of Defense, earlier on Friday. That particular post guarded by the Indian Army in Jammu and Kashmir is located at a staggering altitude of 17,000 feet. Ever since it was shared on Twitter, the post has been garnering attention, love and appreciation from all over India.
Meanwhile, talking about Hanuma Vihari, he was included in the playing XI as Virat Kohli’s replacement in the second Test as the skipper suffered an upper back spasm. Vihari would go on to make full use of the opportunity as he scored 20 off 53 balls in the first inning, and an unbeaten 40 off 84 balls to help India reach respectable totals in both innings.
Such was his display that many former cricketers including Gautam Gambhir have opined that Vihari shouldn’t be replaced when Virat returns to the playing XI in the third Test in Cape Town from January 11.
