Indian batsman Hanuma Vihari has said she does not want to be carried away by the importance of playing in the WTC final.
The right-wing batsman, who represented Warwickshire in the English Championship last month, is part of the 20-member Indian team, which will play the WTC final against New Zealand on June 18 and five test matches against England on August 4.
“I’m excited, but you don’t want to show so much excitement. Because you want to be in this moment,” he said in a video posted by the International Cricket Council (ICC) on Twitter.
“You don’t want to be too carried away by the importance of the situation. As an athlete, playing in the World Cup final for India is always a great feeling,” he added.
Vihari, who was ignored by the Indian Premier League (IPL) franchises, did not have a great time during the season.
He played three games and six assists and managed a total of 100 tracks at an average of 16.66. So far he has made two ducks and two dozen out of eight.
Only his second match against Essex proved fruitful. He made 32 and 52 in that game with his second inning in half a century, helping the team pursue a 256-goal with seven wickets.
