Hanumah Vihari finally breaks silence over IPL 2020 rejection

India cricket team Hanuma Vihari failed to find a buyer during the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 auction in Calcutta on December 19th.

However, the 26-year-old is not too worried about anyone paying the base price of Rs 50 Lakh just a year after the Delhi Capitals (DC) singing him for Rs 2 Crore.

"It's not under 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 national team in white ball cricket."

"So every time I have a chance, I will do well for the Indian team," said Vihari PTI.

Vihari went on to add that he is now focusing on the good looks of India's upcoming Test series in New Zealand away from home.

"Now, I'm really looking forward to the trip to New Zealand. I have two India A races followed by the Test series (February-March)."

"This will be an important series for us as we will not have a trial series for a long time until we get to Australia. So it will be a good series and I am really looking forward to driving India A."

The Hindu fan is also very aware of what to expect from the Kiwis after his previous visit to New Zealand earlier this year with the Indian side.

"With stormy conditions, swings help will be a challenge," he said.

"But everybody has good technique in the Indian team and we did well overseas as units hit and look forward to it," he added.
