Covered test opener Murali Vijay has sworn to return and claims that he will continue to strive for the highest level as long as his feet move and his head remains still.
"I'll play for India again, I'm positive, I'll figure out a few things, make runs – first, I want India to win the series in England," said the 34-year-old in the margins of his Cholly Jolly Rovers game on the IIT-Chemplast site where he hit 37 of the 32 balls.
Vijay was dropped from the India & # 39; s Test Team last month after an average of 6.50 in four innings against England, with a pair at Lord & # 39; s so he did not play the third match on Trent Bridge, which won India. Scores of 0 and 0 at Lord & # 39; s lowered Vijay & # 39; s batting average in tests outside Asia since the beginning of 2015 to 16.53, a stark comparison with the tours of South Africa, New Zealand, England and Australia in 2013 and 2014 when he made 1000 points in 12 Tests with an average of 41.66, with two centuries and six fifty.
This was the first time in his test career that Vijay was shot, but he did not see it as an important roadblock. "It's not the first time this happened to me," he said. "I believe age is only a figure, as long as my feet are moving and my head is still, I will continue playing, the English pacems have worked out their game plan this time, moving closer to my body and letting me play more episodes."
Vijay is India & # 39; s fourth most successful test opener with 3831 runs at 40.32 from that position, with 12 hundreds and 15 fifties. Only two India-openers score more centuries: Sunil Gavaskar (33) and Virender Sehwag (22). No other opener has made more than the eight Test centuries of Navjot Singh Sidhu.
