- Hanuma Vihari is not included in the test kit
- Will tour South Africa with India A
IND Vs NZ: After the end of the T20 World Cup, preparations are underway for the next series between India and New Zealand. The team has been announced for 3 T20 and 2 tests. The test team was announced on Friday and Ajinkya Rahane has been named captain. Because Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma will be resting. But the team’s announcement for this series of tests came as a surprise to everyone that Hanuma Vihari has not been included in the team.
Hanuma Vihari has made a name for himself in recent years beating the order in test matches, which is why he was seen as a strong side. This year, when the Indian team made history by winning the series in Australia, in the same series in saving the game, Hanuma Vihari saved the game by keeping his foot like Angad.
The special thing is that the Test match held in Sydney is the last Test of Hanuma Vihari, who played for the Indian team. Then the India team was playing in Virat Kohli’s absence when he returned to India after playing a match. India had a crushing defeat in the same match, but after that, under the leadership of Ajinkya Rahane, the Indian team played three matches, won 2 and tied one match.

Hanuma Vihari did not find a place in the test series against New Zealand, but has been included with India A for the South Africa tour. This is the reason why many questions are being asked. Many senior players have rested for the New Zealand series. Virat Kohli will not be part of the first test, Rohit Sharma will not play the full series.
Players like Rishabh Pant, Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami, who play regularly, have also rested. In such a situation, Hanuma Vihari could have had the opportunity to play the series at home. But there is also the argument that many hitters have been included in the team’s squad, so that the place of Hanuma Vihari was not taken. But because he was already part of the team, everyone was shocked not to mention his name.
