England county cricket club Warwickshire on Thursday announced the signing of India Test batsman Hanuma Vihari for the early rounds of the County Championship. The 27-year-old cricketer made his Test debut against England in 2018 and has played 12 Tests to date, including three matches in the recent series victory away to Australia and has a career-best score of 111 versus West Indies in 2019.

"Hanuma will arrive in the UK this afternoon. We hope that this gives time for him to do his six days quarantine and to feature in next week's game versus Nottinghamshire at Trent Bridge, subject to receiving negative COVID tests," said Warwickshire's Director of Cricket Paul Farbrace in an official statement.

In first-class cricket, Vihari, who is acting as cover for Pieter Malan, has made 7,094 runs in 90 games, boasting an impressive average of 56.75, whilst his off-spin has also contributed 27 wickets.
