Indian test cricketer Hanuma Vihari who was not picked by any franchise in the recently concluded IPL 2020 auction for the upcoming season has opened up on the IPL snub.
Hanuma Vihari said that he is not demoralized after getting snubbed and he already has shifted his focus on the upcoming tour of New Zealand. He further added that he doesn't want to comment over it as getting a contract in IPL is not in his control. He also said that he has been trying to contribute as much as he can for Team India as well as for his state team in the white-ball cricket. The 26-year-old cricketer also recited that he is excited to lead India A for 2 games in New Zealand which will be followed by a Test series starting on February 21.
As per Scroll.in “It’s not in my control and I don’t really want to comment on it. My job is to play well and win matches. I have done well for the state team in white-ball cricket. So whenever I get an opportunity, I will do well for the India team as well,” Vihari quoted.
Hanuma Vihari further stated that his sole focus is on test cricket.
He was found quoting further “Now, I am really looking forward to the New Zealand trip. I have two India A games followed by the Test series (in February-March). That will be an important series for us as we won’t have a Test series for a long time until we go to Australia. So it will be a good series and I’m really looking forward to leading India A.”
Team India is all set to host Sri Lanka for 3 T20s followed by a 3 one-day series against Australia. Indian Team will head out to New Zealand for a full tour including 5 T20s, 3 ODIs and 2 Test matches.
