Vihari was not part of Team India in the New Zealand series. It is not clear if he was injured. Despite media reports that he has been dropped from the team, Hanuma Vihari was in the squad for the last time India played a Test on the England tour. However, Hanuman did not get a place in Team India on the England tour. He also recently played in the Syed Mustaq Ali Trophy.
