5 Indian Players Whose Test Careers Might End After The ICC WTC Final 2021
Hanuma Vihari is part of the Indian squad that will lock horns with New Zealand in the ICC World Test Championship final. He is a Test specialist and only represents the Indian team in the Test format, so he has a big responsibility in Test matches. However, Vihari has continuously failed to perform in the last few Test matches he played.
Against Australia in December-January 2020-21, Vihari played three Test matches but failed to score even a fifty. He played 5 innings in which his highest score was 23 runs. His scores against Australia were 16, 8, 21, 4, and 23*. Moreover, during the prior Test series against New Zealand, he scored 55 runs in one innings but got out for 7, 15, and 9 in the other three innings. Therefore, due to his inconsistent batting show, Vihari might lose his spot in the Test squad after the ICC World Test Championship final.
