England County Cricket Club Warwickshire announced the signing of Indian tryout Hanuma Vihari for the first rounds of the County Championship on Thursday. The 27-year-old cricketer made his test debut against England in 2018 and has appeared in 12 tests so far, including three games in the recent series victory in Australia and has a career-best score of 111 against the West Indies in 2019. “Hanuma will arrive in the UK this afternoon. We hope this gives him time to do his six days in quarantine and play next week’s game against Nottinghamshire at Trent Bridge, under reserve to receive negative COVID tests, “said Warwickshire Cricket manager Paul. Farbrace in an official statement.

“We are also very grateful to Hanuma for stepping in at such a short time to cover Pieter Malan pending confirmation of his visa and safe entry into the UK from South Africa,” said Farbrace.

In January of this year, Vihari, who was going through a rough patch, had a brilliant fight playing 161 balls and forming a courageous partnership with Ravichandran Ashwin to deny Australia a victory in the third test.


Additionally, after the conclusion of the third test, it was revealed that he hit with a level 2 teardrop to script the Sydney draw. Subsequently, Vihari was excluded from the fourth test, which India won, sealing the series 2-1.
