He announced that he is taking this opportunity to make everyone know that he is parting ways with the Andhra cricket association on good terms and said that he had the privilege to captain and represent the Andhra team for the past five years. He continued by saying that with him and others, they have blossomed into a team and thanked all his teammates, coaches and the office bearers of the Association for the constant support they gave him. He ended by saying that from next season, he will be representing Hyderabad Cricket Association in the forthcoming tournaments.
A source in the HCA told the Sportstar magazine that Vihari has already talked to officials in the HCA over the last few days and has made his intention clear to play for Hyderabad again. For that, he has been welcomed to do so by the Association. He represented Hyderabad, last, in 2015 but moved to Andhra for better opportunities and prospects which did lead to him playing for the Indian Test team, since 2018.
He has scored 7261 runs in First Class Cricket at an average of 55 with his highest being an unbeaten 302, which he scored while representing Andhra in the 2017-18 Ranji Trophy Season against Odisha. He has also played 12 tests and scored 624 runs at an average of 32.8. He is still known as the hero of the Sydney Test match against Australia where his dogged performance allowed the team to draw the match. India ended up winning a historic Test Series 1-2 due to his performance in the third test.
