India opener Murali Vijay returns to Test action after last playing in Dharamsala against Australia in March 2017. He was selected for the Sri Lanka tour in July-August but withdrew due to wrist injury. Now back in the Test set-up, Vijay scored 140 for Tamil Nadu against Odisha in Cuttack last week and is in the right frame of mind, as he tells G Krishnan in this exclusive chat

What can the 140 (for Tamil Nadu against Odisha in latest round of Ranji Trophy) do to your confidence going into the Test series against Sri Lanka?
It is good and has come at the right time. I have been working towards it. I was looking for match practice and this was a perfect thing that I really wanted to, and it came my way.
How prepared you considering you last played Tests in March and missed the Sri Lanka tour in July-August?
I went through that period like those who go through an injury, and wait for the day to play the game. Obviously, now I am fit and ready to go. I’m looking forward to better myself as a cricketer. Those things are exciting for me than just the opportunities and what I am going to do.
