In the match against Madhya Pradesh, captain Hanuma Vihari came down to play with a broken wrist twice and also hit a boundary with his left hand.
He said, “I was very upset because it was a quarterfinal match and an important match for Andhra and I was not able to bat. I thought that even if I add 10-15 runs for the last wicket, it will be beneficial for the team and I took that decision. If you have to do this for the team, then you get courage.
