Andhra captain Hanuma Vihari walked out to bat on Wednesday despite a fractured wrist and played left-handed in the Ranji Trophy quarterfinal against Madhya Pradesh.

Vihari had been retired hurt on Day 1 after being struck by a bouncer from pacer Avesh Khan. He was batting on 16 off 37 balls.

A team official confirmed that he had suffered a fracture on his left wrist and had been advised five to six weeks of rest. The official, however, added that he would bat if the team needed it.
