Hanuma Vihari is an Indian cricketer who represents Andhra Pradesh in domestic cricket in India. He bats right-handed and occasionally bowls right-arm off-break.
Vihari played for India’s under-19 cricket team, which won the ICC under-19 cricket world cup in Australia in 2012.
Hanuma was born in the coastal town of Kakinada, Andhra Pradesh, India, on October 13, 1993.
Hanuma’s parents were forced to relocate to Hyderabad when he fell in love with cricket at the age of five.
He began his training there at the late Nagesh Hammond’s academy. However, due to a lack of funds, he was unable to continue his training.
He then met John Manoj of St. John’s Academy, who was impressed by Vihari’s potential. However, because his family could not finance Hanuma’s cricket and education, Manoj, the school’s sports director, sought the management of St Andrews School and was successful in getting Hanuma accepted.
Meanwhile, Hanuma’s father died when he was 12 years old. Vihari returned the day following his father’s death, thanks to his major investment in cricket, and contributed greatly to his school’s triumph with an innings of 80 runs.
His Ranji Trophy performance for Hyderabad is truly outstanding. He was the leading scorer in the Ranji Trophy in 2013-14.
