Indian middle-order batsman Hanuma Vihari has said that he is ready to do anything for the sake of his team during the upcoming England tour.

Team India will embark on a three-month-long trip to England next month to take part in the World Test Championship final against New Zealand and a five-match Test series against hosts England later in the summer.

And, Hanuma Vihari, who is currently in England for the County Championship, has said he is ready to play whatever role his team wants him to play and that also includes opening the innings.

Vihari has previously opened the innings for India during the Boxing Day Test at the MCG back in 2018.

“I will do anything the team asks of me,” said Hanuma Vihari as quoted by PTI.

The Andhra cricketer also revealed that he is working on his off-breaks to lend a better balance to the team.

“I am working on my off-breaks,” said Vihari.

Hanuma Vihari is in England since early April to take part in the County Championship for Warwickshire.

The middle-order batsman has endured a tough time in early season conditions and has managed just one 50+ score which came against Essex.

But for Vihari, more than runs, it’s about acclimatizing to the English conditions and he is hoping that his experience will benefit Team India in the forthcoming summer.

“It’s been challenging as it’s early part of the season but I have gained good experience. Getting used to the climate and pitches here is the idea. Hope it helps during the WTC final against New Zealand and the series against England,” he said.
