Hanuma Vihari

India’s Test batsman Hanuma Vihari, who is currently playing County cricket in England, took everyone by surprise on Saturday after he revealed that he wasn’t active on Twitter due to some specific reasons. He shared this piece of information after coming back to the microblogging website.

Notably, Hanuma, who is also a member of India’s recently announced squad for the World Test Championship final against New Zealand and the following five-match Test series against England, hadn’t been active on Twitter in the recent past for the reason unknown. However, on May 8, the batsman took to the social media platform to ask for an oxygen concentrator in Vizag for a senior citizen. The tweet from him was coming after a gap of almost 3 months.

Here is his tweet:

After this tweet, Hanuma didn’t post anything on the microblogging website for the next 13 hours, and when he posted, he opened up on why he wasn’t available on the platform in the recent past. The player revealed that something was wrong with his Twitter account recently that kept him away from it.

Here is Hanuma’s post:

Hanuma Vihari gets dropped by English county team Warwickshire

The Indian batsman is going through a lean patch in his cricket career. After failing to find a taker in IPL 2021 auction, Hanuma moved to play County cricket in England. However, his stars don’t seem to have changed much as he started the competition with a duck for his side Warwickshire. He then scored 8, 32, 52, 8 and 0 before eventually getting dropped for South Africa’s Pieter Malan in the side’s game against Worcestershire. However, it is still unclear if Hanuma has been dropped from the squad for just one game or his contract with Warwickshire has ended.
