Look

by Naked Cricket

Look at Murali Vijay’s test numbers: three tests in three years - one in November 2008, the second in December 2009 and the third in January 2010. Next one in Feb 2011? All three played in the sub continent so far, Nagpur, Mumbai and now Dhaka. Test average of…let’s not even get into that, it’s way too early. But take a look at how he bats, sometime tomorrow.

Look at the intensity in those eyes, if you didn’t know better you’d think he was high on test cricket. I haven’t seen that same intensity in either Nohit Sharma or DKNY – not that I like to look into their eyes. But here’s this thing with Vijay – his eyes make a point. Is that why MSD placed him at, eh, point. I saw one super save (I’m sure there were more) – initially I thought that’s UV all mended, but it was Vijay, stubble, longer hair – clearly he knows what works in this Indian team.

Look at this other one I wrote for Murali Vijay.

haha, nicely spotted NC... Feb 2011, might well be a regular from then onwards if all goes well for him. I don't think have this RD, SRT, VVSL batting line-up come 2011, and that might not be such a bad thing. For all of our eyes even...

Even if RD, SRT, VVS don't play for India in 2011, I'm confident along with Sanath, they will form a new team, INDSRI. And the SL and Indian boards will make sure they play all the time - it will give playing with oneself a whole new meaning.

Good one NC. Remember cricket was a winter game of the gentlemen and there you have Murali Vijay, steadfastly refusing to sell his soul to Satan and play round the clock/calendar.
