Vihari thanks his team for their support during the tour, especially the team’s coach and captain. ‘After we won the series, he (Kohli) came straight to me and said ‘‘hold it’’ and hugged me. He was kind enough to give me the trophy and I was very happy to hold the winning trophy’, Vihari stated. ‘I want to thank each and every member of the team for the contribution in this win. This is an amazing team. When you win a series, especially overseas, it feels great. I am happy we started the Test Championship on a massive note’.
With his impressive Test performance in the tour, Vihari is expected to play in India’s upcoming event. South Africa’s tour of India will start on September 15.
