Hanuma Vihari vs ACA controversy finally ends as cricketer gets NOC — A brief timeline

It would be interesting to see as to which team does Hanuma Vihari play for after his departure from ACA, in the next Ranji Trophy season.

India cricketer Hanuma Vihari has finally gotten an NOC from ACA (Andhra Cricket Association), which now means the talented batsman will play for a different team from the next season. The NOC took over two months to come after Vihari decided to make a move from the state, after a controversy had erupted during a Ranji Trophy match in January, between him and 17th player Prudhvi Raj.

“I have been asking for NOC from 2 months, mailed them 4 times. Didn’t give my NOC. Now that things have turned, they’ve issued my NOC immediately. lol,” Vihari wrote.
