Andhra Cricket hits back at Hanuma Vihari, claims players showed support under pressure

Andra Pradesh Cricket slams Hanuma Vihari, claims ex skipper obtained sings from teammates under duress

The Hanuma Vihari controversy wages on. Now the Andhra Cricket Board has hit back at Hanuma Vihari claiming that he made the other players sign his support form under pressure. Andhra Cricket Association claims that the Letter of Support has been signed under duress.

The incident started when Vihari took to his social media platform to last out at the Andhra board. He claimed he was wrongfully asked to resign from his position as the captain of the team. For shouting at Prudhvi Raj, the 17th player in the team, he was asked by the ACA to leave his spot as the skipper.

But then again, Vihari took to social media to post a letter of support signed by the players who want the senior to remain as the captain of the team. Now things have taken a fresh turn. The ACA has asserts that the signatures of the players were obtained under duress. ACA further went on to claim that players have often complained about Hanuma Vihari about his behaviour.
