Murali Vijay practises with tennis balls ahead of Kotla Test
Going into the final Test, which the Indians are using as a final preparation for the tougher South African tour later this month, the Indian team management seems to have a problem of plenty in choosing between the three opening options -- Murali Vijay, Lokesh Rahul and Shikhar Dhawan.
But Vijay didn't look too perturbed and said he and his fellow openers are good friends on and off the field, and that the camaraderie helps them do well out in the middle despite the opening combination yet to be sorted out.
"It doesn't matter (settled opening pair). We three are good friends off the field and it makes it easier to do well. We three are in good form and it will help us in the future series," he said.
