Murali Vijay : Not often you see a batsman getting established in the longest format of the game without finding himself a place in the limited overs squad, especially in modern days. Despite being overlooked to play for India in the limited overs, Vijay stands tall as India’s top choice for opening the batting in the longest format.

  • Born in Chennai, he belongs to a family of scholars, but eventually never excelled in academics. He however found his destiny on the cricket ground.
  • He ran away from home after failing in his academics and fearing a burst of outrage from his father.
  • He worked at a snooker parlour to earn his livelihood and eventually began playing cricket aged 17.
