The 29-year-old had achieved effectively in white-ball cricket for Tamil Nadu final yr. Though he got here up with some good efforts throughout India-A’s tour of New Zealand, he feels he may have achieved higher. “I played well but I wish I could have finished a few more games in New Zealand. On a similar tour before the 2019 World Cup, I did do that — that’s how I got into the National team.”

Even although he has the ability to coach at house, Vijay has been handicapped by the truth that he has to repair sure issues to get began.
