Murali Vijay - Indian Cricket Team`s New Wall

When it`s about Cricket, everything seems to revolve around numbers. And Murali Vijay, the new wall for the Indian cricket squad post Rahud Dravid`s retirement seems to be a master in this game of numbers. Born an Aries, Murali Vijay possesses leadership qualities, drive for bigger things in his life, and determination to achieve what he desires. He proved to be a true Aries when he smashed two consecutive tons against the `invincible` Australia and helped India with the clean sweep against Australia.

His ruling number is 1, which makes him farsighted and gives him the ability to influence others. This 6 feet 1 inch tall right-handed batsman has helped India to clinch the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. And what`s even better is that the Australian legendary player Allan Border himself praised his techniques to remain on the field for a longer period. Border said that Murali`s defensive shots are very assured.

Murali has a fair record in all the seasons of Indian Premier League (2009-2012). With 2 centuries and 5 half centuries, Murali has led Chennai Super Kings to victory many times. He is very motivating and amiable. Though he is concerned about his appearance, he must stay away from seeking cheap popularity. Murali is flexible and loves challenges. That`s what he proved to the selectors who chose him as an opener for the Indian Test Cricket team against Australia.

On 01 April 2013, he will be celebrating his 29th birthday. He has already grabbed the spotlight as far as the media is concerned. The Australian media, notorious for being partial towards its national team, has also praised him and Shikhar Dhawan for their incredible partnership in the recent third test match between the two countries. India won the match, and Murali and Dhawan won the hearts of all.

Murali Vijay is a true showman and still has a long way to go.
