At the end of Day 1, India was 357 losing 6 wickets as Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin have been unbeaten on 45 and 10 runs respectively. After the end of the match, Hanuma Vihari shared a few words, "Felt good going out in the middle. I was batting well, and I had a good preparation.

Great opportunity batting at number three for India. I am happy to bat wherever the team wants me to, but my most preferred position is number three, I have done it in first-class cricket. I thought initially the ball was coming onto the bat well.

But once the ball went old, it was difficult to time the ball well. Rishabh is a different kind of a batsman and it was a special innings. We all know how he bats, and it was a special innings today. He helped us get to 350+ on the first day, which will be helpful going forward," said Hanuma Vihari was quoted by Cricbuz.
