Hyderabad: India’s Test Specialists Hanuma Vihari, who left Hyderabad to play for Andhra to pursue his international prospects, is back “home” after five seasons for the upcoming domestic season.
Vihari, a disciple of India’s fielding coach R Sridhar, left Hyderabad in the 2015–16 season when the then chairman of selectors MSK Prasad offered him the captaincy of Andhra and furthered his selection in the traditional format.
although now with Hyderabad Cricket Association Vihari, run by former India captain Mohammad Azharuddin, will once again be seen wearing the Hyderabad jersey.
The 27-year-old himself announced the decision from his official Twitter handle.

“I take this opportunity to inform everyone that I am parting ways with Andhra Cricket Union on good terms. I have had the privilege of captaining and representing Andhra for the last 5 years,” wrote Vihari in a short note, which he shared on Twitter.
“I will be a part of Hyderabad Cricket Association from the coming season,” he further announced.
For the record, the right-handed batsman, who has played 94 first-class games, has scored 7261 runs with 21 centuries and an average of 55. He also played 80 List A games in which he scored 3001 runs.
It can be said that Azharuddin, the former India captain, being the president of the Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA) would have played a big role in getting Vihari to decide on this move of his career.
There is a good chance that Vihari will now lead Hyderabad in the Ranji Trophy in the upcoming season if he is not picked for India’s tour of South Africa in December-January. Before this, he will definitely play Mushtaq Ali T20 and Vijay Hazare One Day Meet.
