Twitter fumes over Hanuma Vihari’s inclusion ahead of Karun Nair
Hanuma Vihari surprisingly got the nod ahead of Karun Nair for the firth Test.

The decision to include Hanuma Vihari in India’s Playing XI for the fifth Test against England ahead of Karun Nair has received plenty of flak. On Friday, shortly before the toss, the BCCI tweeted images of Vihari receiving his first international cap, which meant that Nair, part of the India’s primary squad for the tour of England, would have to continue warming the bench.

The decision was heavily criticised by Sunil Gavaskar during the pre-match show, and echoed by many across Twitter.

Fans were equally unhappy with Vihari getting the not ahead of Nair.
