ACA announces investigation on Hanuma Virahi's Issue:- The public dispute between cricketer Hanuma Vihari and the Andhra Cricket Association (ACA) has sparked a heated discussion, with fans and politicians rallying behind the player. Vihari, who has played in 16 Tests for India, recently made the decision to cut ties with the Andhra team, alleging mistreatment and unfair practices by the ACA. This decision came after a public argument where Vihari accused the association of orchestrating his removal as captain and pressuring him to step down due to political meddling. Vihari's claims have gained widespread support, especially on social media. The hashtag #WeStandWithHanuma trended in India, with influential figures like former chief minister Nara Chandrababu Naidu and actor-politician Pawan Kalyan expressing their solidarity with the cricketer.

Pawan Kalyan, the leader of Jana Sena, criticized the ACA's handling of the situation, questioning whether the influence of a political leader should outweigh the contributions of a national cricketer. Kalyan expressed his disappointment with the treatment Vihari has received, emphasizing the importance of showing respect to players who have dedicated themselves to the sport. Meanwhile, the ACA has announced that they will be conducting an investigation into the allegations made by Vihari. However, the association has denied Vihari's claims, stating that his removal as captain was based on professional considerations and not political interference.

The ACA received complaints from various sources, citing instances of misconduct by Vihari. They explained that the decision to change the captaincy was made because Vihari's potential as an Indian prospect could affect his availability for the entire season. As a result, Ricky Bhui was chosen as the new captain by the senior selection committee. The allegations made by Vihari have sparked a debate within the cricketing community in Andhra Pradesh. The ACA also accused Vihari of frequently requesting a No Objection Certificate (NOC) for transfers to other state teams, only to change his mind later. The ACA condemned the politicization of cricket and stressed the importance of maintaining the integrity of the sport. They emphasized their commitment to following the rules and regulations and promoting respect and fairness.

The ACA expressed their disappointment at Vihari's accusations and assured that they handle disagreements fairly. In response to Vihari's criticisms on social media, the ACA revealed his history of transfer requests and accused him of making false claims. They also expressed disappointment at the way cricket has been politicized and called for a focus on facts rather than allegations on social media.
