When asked about will he open the innings in absence of regular opener, Rohit Sharma, Vihari said he is ready to bat anywhere.
"As a player, I am prepared to bat anywhere. As of now, I've not been informed anything. As I said before as well, if the team requires me to bat wherever, I am ready to bat," said Vihari to ANI.
Vihari expected to bat at number six: Our take
India are likely to go in with seven batsmen in the first Test. Vihari is expected to come out at number six rather than be presented as a make-shift opener. One between Shaw or Gill will likely be opening alongside Mayank.
