No longer seen in the team
Ever since Rohit Sharma secured his place in the Test team, there have been many batsmen whose cards have been cut off from the team forever. Surprisingly, there is a batsman who has also done great in Australia and South Africa. But now the selectors do not value him. The name of this batsman is Murali Vijay. Murali Vijay was once Team India’s most trusted opener.
But Vijay has not been given a place in the team for the last few years. Vijay played his last match against Australia in December 2018. After that Mayank Agarwal and later Rohit Sharma cut their cards completely from the team. Now I don’t think Vijay will ever get a place in the team. This is because Murali is nowhere near as active in international and domestic cricket.
Murali Vijay’s career has been like this
Murali Vijay has played a total of 61 matches in Test cricket, scoring 3982 runs. At this time 12 centuries also came from his bat. He did not get much opportunity in ODI and T20 cricket and could not do anything special. He has been out of the team for the last 3 years and now looking at the form of Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul, it seems he will not get a place in the team next time.
Show Dhawan the way out
Apart from Murali Vijay, there is another player whose career came to an end with the arrival of Rohit Sharma in the team. The name of this batsman is Shikhar Dhawan. Although Dhawan is still seen playing ODIs and T20s for India, he has not been seen in the Test squad for a long time. Because, the Indian team has so many openers at the moment that there is no need for batsmen like Dhawan and Vijay.
