Chennai:

Batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar might have stolen the show on the first day of the Nagpur Test, but one man who made a quiet yet noticeable debut was Tamil Nadu opener M Vijay.

M. Vijay, who was included in the side in place of Gautam Gambhir, gave a good start with Virender Sehwag. He was dismissed for 33 in his first Test innings but he showed that he was definitely a talent that cannot be ignored. Understandably the parents of the 24-year-old were a proud couple.

Vijay's parents back in Chennai said they were proud to see their boy become one of the men in blue in the city of oranges, Nagpur.

"We are proud. We believed he would make it but didn't expect it to happen this soon," said Murali, M Vijay's Father.

Though it was a late start for Vijay in cricket at the age of 17, his rise from a place in the Ranji squad to the coveted opener's position in Team India has been phenomenal.

He started playing Ranji Trophy two years back. An average of nearly 50 runs in the first-class cricket ensured the selectors could never ignore Vijay.
