"I am taking this opportunity to inform everyone that I am parting ways with Andhra cricket association on good terms. I have had the privilege to captain and represent Andhra for the past 5 years. We have blossomed into a team we can be proud of and I hereby thank all my teammates, coaches and office bearers of the association for the constant support. I will be a part of Hyderabad cricket association from the coming season," Vihari wrote in a small note, which he shared on Twitter.

The 27-year-old scored 2990 runs at an average of 56.41 in those games, but did even better for Andhra, slamming 1741 runs in just 21 matches at an average of 62.17.
