WATCH: Andhra Pradesh captain Hanuma Vihari on Wednesday displayed a brave gesture when he stood for his team in a quarterfinal of the Ranji Trophy tournament against Madhya Pradesh. The AP captain Vihari came out to bat despite suffering from a fractured wrist to help the side swell their total. Notably, the right-handed Indian star batted left-handed with a single hand to protect his injured wrist.

Vihari got injured during the Day 1 of the Quarterfinal clash when a delivery from Avesh Khan hit the batter on his hand. Scans were later done and it came out that Vihari has got his wrist fractured. When his team lost their ninth wicket in the form of Prithvi Raj Yarra, Vihari came out to bat.
