the future is here...

its not easy to look anywhere when jatman savages bowlers... teams... morales... reputations... the way only he can...

watching jatman is like a roller coaster ride... which evokes all possible emotions in you... like life itself... coz when he plays he metaphors into a life... some days you will walk like king... some days you want to be left alone... some days you want to fight... some days you will throw the towel in disgust... and some days you will ask god that if this is my last day on earth then it could not have been better...

but this post is not about jatman... its about murali vijay...

more than the runs he scored yesterday... its his re-assuring demeanor on field which makes you believe that future of indian cricket will be in safe hands...

he has the temperament and body language which not only oozes confidence but distinctly pronounce he belongs to the highest level... he eases in like he was never out of the team... you would be fooled in believing if actually he was opening in this series all this while or was he merely filling in the shoes of the most prolific opener of team india... gautam gambhir...

so it comes as no surprise that he did well both times in such a short notice... coming out of cold...

given that we have the opening combination to die for... and it will be hard to find a place for him at the very top... then why not play him in middle order...? if a middle order batsman can be converted into an opening batsman then why not an opener can be drafted into the team to, say, bat at no. 3...?

indian cricket must find a place for the players like murli vijay... who really wants to represent india at the highest level unlike glamorous pretenders who would often play tape recorded statement that they love test cricket... when their temperament... their approach towards highest form of game is anything but that...

Vijay's eyes have the hunger of a younger Dravid. Like his balance, offside play is tops and much as I'd have liked him to get a ton, the innings was a rare gift.

His get out shot sucked, almost saw that coming, but partnering jatman like he did, that says something.

Cheeka's making some good calls.

exactly... its not easy to keep your concentration going when jatman going maverick at other end...

may be he can take some tips from dravid for he has shown how to do it being involved in so many partnership with him of late...
