It was a debut to remember for Hanuma Vihari as the 24-year old contributed both with the ball and ball during India’s final Test against England at the Oval. It was a huge occasion for the young all-rounder and it was skipper Virat Kohli who helped him in calming his nerves while batting in the first innings.
“I was blank at that moment. It felt like a different world altogether — going out there to face James Anderson and Stuart Broad. I have been watching them on TV from a young age. And then to be suddenly facing them felt surreal,” Vihari told Firstpost in an interview.
