The young batsman from Hyderabad, Hanuma Vihari is relishing his debut India call for the last two Tests of the five-match Test series against England.

Meanwhile, India bounced back at Trent Bridge beating England by 203 runs to make it 2-1. It will be a huge confidence booster for the visitors ahead of the two Tests.

Hanuma Vihari admitted that it’s a dream come true moment for him. He also noted that it is a surreal feeling and is falling short of words to express.

As a young boy I always wanted to play for India one day, I can’t believe that day has come! It’s a dream come true. I have been working so hard for it. Getting into that Virat Kohli-led team — which is one of the best India has produced — is surreal. I don’t know how to express my joy,” Vihari said to The Asian Age.

The 24-year-old is confident to deliver in England if an opportunity comes his way. The confidence stems from his first-class average of 59.45 which is currently the world’s best. Hanuma Vihari’s latest knock was a swashbuckling 148 against South Africa ‘A’ in Alur that forced open doors to the senior side.

Having played there before, in fact, I was there recently with the India ‘A’ team, I have the experience to cope with English conditions. I will also try to get as many inputs as I can from the coaches and senior players and continue to give my 100 percent,” Vihari adds.
