2012 Season Statistics
|Birth Date||01 April 1984|
Murali Vijay is Chennai through and through. The 28-year-old right hander completely redefined himself during IPL 2010 with some impressive displays of power-hitting right at the top for CSK. Known for his technique and poise at the crease, Vijay was drafted into the Indian Test team in 2008 against a daunting Australian side. A clean hitter of the ball, Vijay posses the gift of timing and that was well demonstrated during his record-breaking knock of 127 against Rajasthan Royals in IPL 2010. He ended up scoring 458 runs in the tournament, cementing his place in the Indian T20 squad for the ICC World T20 Championships in the Caribbean. A class performer, Vijay’s presence at the top of the order gives CSK the much needed security while fuelling an attack at the same time.
