Rahul Dravid helped me ease my nerves before Test debut, says Hanuma Vihari
From the Webdesk, 11/09/2018, Mumbai

Hanuma Vihari, who became India's 292nd Test player, credited former India captain Rahul Dravid after scoring a half-century on debut in the fifth and final Test against England at The Oval on Sunday.

Vihari revealed he shared the news with India's U-19 and A team coach Dravid after India's playing XI for The Oval Test was announced.

"I got to know the day before the match. Obviously, I was very thrilled. Because that was my dream, growing up playing cricket. I first informed my family about it and they were very very happy as well.

"I called him [Dravid] the day before I made my debut and told him I was making my debut. He spoke to me for a couple of minutes and gave his inputs and I thought it eased my nerves a little bit because it's coming from a legend and you know that you belong here. He just told me that you have the skill set, you have the mindset and the temperament, just go out there and enjoy yourself," Vihari, who scored 56, said at the end of third day's play on Sunday.
