Almost all the major players of the Indian team will make their debut in the IPL 2021 for the next two months, while an important batsman will be ready for the challenges to come.
Hanuma Vihari did not find any buyers in the IPL 2021 auction.
IPL 2021 (IPL 2021) is starting in Chennai from 9 April. Once again in the 14th season of the world’s largest T20 league, the legendary cricketers from almost all the major countries including India are going to gather. Almost all the major players of Team India will be seen this time. At the same time, there is a player who came to Australia 3 months ago as a troubleshooter for the Indian team, but he was not given a chance to show his influence in the IPL. Now this player will go to England and show his power there. We are talking about Indian Test cricketer Hanuma Vihari, who will soon be seen playing with England’s county team Warwickshire.
Indian batsman Hanuma Vihari, who played a very important role in saving the Sydney Test earlier this year against Australia, was not bought by any team in the IPL auction for the second consecutive year. In such a situation, Vihari has decided to go to England instead of staying away from the cricketer for a few months, where he will be able to try his hand in county cricket and maintain his match practice.
Will play 3 matches for Warwickers
News agency PTI has quoted BCCI sources as saying that the county team of Birmingham, England are going to be a part of Warwickisher. Vihari has already reached England in this regard and is going to be a part of this team soon. He will play at least 3 matches in England’s domestic season. BCCI official said,
“Yes, Vihari will play for England’s county team Warwickisher this season. He will play some matches. He has reached England. Contract is being prepared for this. He will play at least 3 matches. We are trying to somehow get some more matches to play. “
Lazy saved despite injury in Sydney Test
No official announcement has been made by Warwickisher about this yet, but from the perspective of Vihari, the time coming with this team will be very important for them. Vihari played his last Test for India in Sydney earlier this year. On the last day of that test, Vihari batted with Ashwin for nearly 4 hours in spite of the hamstring discomfort and drew the test in difficult conditions. After this test, Vihari returned to India and was working on his fitness at the National Cricket Academy in Bangalore. He was also not a part of the Test series against England. Although he made a comeback with the Vijay Hazare Trophy, his performance there was not very special.
Good opportunity to prepare before England tour
Vihari is an important part of the Indian Test team. Despite the entry of many new players in Team India in recent times, he is a part of the team’s plan. The Indian team has to play the final of the ICC World Test Championship in England in June this year. After this, there will be a 5-match Test series between Team India and England in August-September. In this context, this time spent in the county will be very useful for Vihari.
