Vijay targets 2019 World Cup berth

Murali Vijay is on a comeback mission. Not just to get himself declared fit ahead of the Sri Lanka Test series after undergoing a wrist surgery, the opener is keen to make it back into the limited-overs scheme of things. In a recent interview, the 33-year-old opener spoke about his ambition to represent India in the 2019 World Cup.

"For now, my priority is to win overseas Tests for India. I feel my chances in the limited-overs are yet to come. But my aim is to be part of that Indian team for the 2019 World Cup in England. I'm trying to break the doors and play all three formats, " said Vijay.

When asked about the Kumble-Kohli rift, the stylish batsman diplomatically side-stepped the question and replied, "I haven't yet come back into the team. I was in the US at that time with family. I wasn't aware of what's happening. Kumble has done a lot of great things himself and for the team. He was a pretty good coach. Both Kumble and Kohli are great contributors to Indian cricket and they know what they are doing. Both are great individuals to handle and it's been fantastic working with them."
