Murali Vijay has not played white ball cricket for more than 1 year. His last T20 game was for his state site Tamil Nadu when the 33-year-old played against Kerala in February last year. He missed out last year’s Indian Premier League due to wrist and shoulder injury.
The right-handed batter was bought by Chennai-based Chennai Super Kings for the 11th edition of the IPL. Vijay had previously played alongside MS Dhoni in the IPL where he along with former Australia opener Mathew Hayden played few amazing knocks together. As the IPL is coming closer, Vijay hopes that the IPL date should come quickly. Vijay is excited to be back with his old franchise under the leadership of MS Dhoni.
Vijay feels that he was lucky to get some time off before the tournament to get fitter. Vijay was attending an event in the city on Thursday.
