IND 312/2 (98.0 Ovs) CRR: 3.18
Day 2: Stumps – India lead by 107 runs
Indian opener Murali Vijay has expressed satisfaction after scoring a century in his comeback Test against Sri Lanka in Nagpur.
“Definitely, any day I will take this,” Vijay said at the conclusion of the second day’s play. “Obviously, we are in a strong position at the end of the day and I wanted to always contribute for the team and I am happy.”
“I feel as a professional you should always be ready whether you get a chance or not,” he said. “You should be ready from inside to get a chance. So whenever you get a chance you are not lacking on that aspect. You can be fully aware of what’s happening and what’s going to happen. It is difficult and I am used to it by now. I just wanted to contribute whenever I get an opportunity to play for India.”
“It’s again an opportunity for us to experience new conditions, and we are playing as a good unit and hopefully we can win the series which is more important than personal glory. Hopefully, we can all put a price on wicket put that 400-plus score so that our bowlers get chance to get them out twice.”
