India vs New Zealand: ‘Ready to bat anywhere’ - Hanuma Vihari after impressive century in warm-up clash
India were reeling at 5 for 3 and then were reduced to 38 for 4 when Hanuma Vihari joined Cheteshwar Pujara out in the middle. The pitch was a green one and the seamers were getting prodigious bounce and movement and this forced both Vihari and Pujara to shut shop and weather the initial storm. The duo added a century stand for the fifth wicket and fought back brilliantly as the pitch evened out against the older ball. This performance could well enthuse the management to bump Vihari up the order as an opener as Prithvi Shaw, Shubman Gill and Mayank Agarwal all failed against the seam and bounce up front.
