Vihari, who was going through a lean patch, put on a brilliant fight as he played 161 balls and formed a brilliant partnership with Ravichandran Ashwin to deny Australia a win in the third Test.
The right-handed batsman on Friday shared a picture before departing from Australia.
On Day 5 of the Sydney Test, Hanuma Vihari played with a Grade 2 tear for three hours to help India draw the match against Australia.

Stand-in skipper Ajinkya Rahane was one of the first to praise Vihari and Ashwin for their match-saving efforts.
They took blows, they flinched, they popped a pill, they opted for extra protective gear when the easier way out was to walk away.
Adversities are mounting for India team. Yet, they keep coming up with solutions.
Vihari-Ashwin pull off one of the greatest saves in Test history after Pant-Pujara heroics.
It has been learnt that Vihari was taken for scans after the match got over and the reports are expected by late evening in Sydney or Tuesday morning.
Ashwin, who has been in scintillating form with the ball in the ongoing series, went on to show grit and fight with the bat as he batted for 128 balls and along with Vihari denied Australia a win.
Paine praised the efforts of debutant Will Pucovski and fellow rookie Cameron Green.
Pant came ahead of Hanuma Vihari at number five, a move that was made keeping the left-right combination in mind, said Rahane.
