He might be struggling for runs in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL), but Chennai Super Kings batsman Murali Vijay feels that he has been batting well in the tournament, which according to the opener is more important than scoring runs.
“…you have to be consistent and I am just working on that. The main thing is that I am batting well and that is more important for me than getting runs. I know that if I keep hitting the ball well runs will come automatically,” Vijay said after scoring his second half-century of IPL 6 against Rajasthan Royals yesterday.
Despite being on top the ladder, the 29-year-old said Chennai cannot afford to be complacent in such a crucial juncture of the tournament.
“We are comfortably placed in the points table but we don’t want to take anything for granted. So, the next game is going to be much more important for us. We are just looking forward to it,” he was quoted as saying by iplt20.com.
