He is an opener who the team can depend upon. He is a player who believes in the theory of consistency rather than a big strike-rate. Murali Vijay might not be hitting the ball out of the park every now and then, but can play long innings and take the team over the line.

Chennai Super Kings needed a player like him who can play without losing his wicket, which was a major problem for them this season. Many players like Ambati Rayudu and Suresh Raina were just giving away their wickets to the opponents. Even though he could only play two matches, he was able to score 64 runs and ended up with an average of 32 at a strike-rate of close to 105.
