In the two matches played in the series, Hanuma Vihari scored 289 runs and emerged as the leading run-scorer of the Indian team. He also seems to be the best available player to be sealed at the number 6 spot in the batting line up, which was left vacant after the retirement of MS Dhoni. Most of the fans and the experts of cricket would be eyeing Hanuma Vihari’s performance as it will pave his way further into the limited-overs format as well.
