Murali Vijay

Murali Vijay: The Indian Cricket Team has been been a dominant force in World Cricket. The prime reason behind that is the kind of batters and bowlers they have been producing over a long period of time. Over the years, be it bowlers or batters, many stalwarts have graced the Indian jersey and have put in every possible effort to help the team achieve great heights.

The baton in Indian cricket from one generation to another has been passed on successfully. The current Indian team is a mixture of both veterans and youngsters. But with the kind of talent that is there these days, it’s fair to say that the future of the team is in safe hands and once the likes of Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, R Ashwin and others call time on their career, there won’t be any problems as the juniors by then will already stamp their authority.
