Meanwhile, Vijay was one of the standout performers during the last tour of Australia in 2014-15. Vijay established himself as a reliable overseas batsman and since then has been an integral part of team India. However, he lost his place during the England tour owing to poor form and subsequently was out from the series against Windies.
However, before the series against Australia, Murali Vijay will feature for India A in a series against New Zealand. But Murali Vijay admitted that he is not overthinking about the prevailing conditions. Moreover, he said that he would try to be in the best shape possible ahead of the Australia series.
“I am not thinking too much about the conditions and just going there for match practice and be in the best possible shape before the Australia Test series… to get some match time under my belt before Australia, get prepared for it and contribute to the team’s cause,” Vijay said to the New Indian Express.
I want to express myself
Talking about the faith shown by the management, Murali Vijay feels he needs to keep confidence in himself. He also added that ne needs to stay possitive and express himself fully during the tour to Down Under.
“I should keep faith in myself. I have to stay positive, play the way I want to and express myself fully. If I do that, I will be in a better situation,” he added.
Talking about any technical changes he has brought to his game, Murali Vijay simply denied it. In conclusion, he has only practiced hard and thanked Essex Cricket Club for giving him an opportunity to play County Cricket.
