His best season was his first one played in 2013 when he took part in 17 matches for Sunrisers Hyderabad and scored 241 runs at 17.21. In 2015, he played only 5 matches in which he scored 39 runs at 9.75. After the 2019 season, in which he made just 4 runs in 2 matches for Delhi Capitals, Vihari remained unsold in the IPL auction for the 2020 season.

International Career

Hanuma Vihari has scored 552 runs in 9 matches at 36.80 with the top score of 111, his only ton. Vihari played his first Test match against England at the Oval in September 2018. His last appearance came against New Zealand in Christchurch in February 2020. Vihari scored 56 in his only innings in the game and took 3/38 in a brilliant all-round display. Following his good performance, Hanuma got selected in the squad for India’s tour of Australia in December 2018. In Perth, in the first Test of the series, Vihari scored 28 in each innings, bettering the innings with bowling returns of 2/84. The next game in Melbourne was a damp squib with the young player scoring just 21 runs in two innings. However, he scored 42 in the next game in Sydney to merit his inclusion in the Indian squad travelling to the West Indies in August 2019. In the first match of the series in North Sound, Vihari scored 32 in the first knock and followed it up with 93 in the second. He did even better in the second Test in Kingston in which he got his maiden Test ton, 111, in the first innings and added an unbeaten 53 in the second. His performances in the two innings got Vihari named Man of the Match.

Vihari got another call-up from the Indian selectors in October 2019 on South Africa’s tour of India. He played in the Test held in Vishakhapatnam, making only 10 runs in the only innings he played. Regardless of his failure in the game, Hanuma was on the plane to New Zealand with the Indian squad in February 2020. With just 86 runs in four innings, Vihari had a disappointing tour, though he scored 55 in the first innings in Christchurch.
